England Ashes Team 2013

Neil has been enjoying the fantastic summer of sport which has brought with it some incredible results for Great Britain. The weekend has seen success for the country in the Ashes, The Open and the Tour de France.

In the cricket, England had a convincing win with 347 runs over to put themselves 2-0 up in the Ashes series. More success followed in the Tour de France which saw Chris Froome win the 100th anniversary title and become the second British rider to win the coveted yellow jersey.

It was almost a clean sweep, but golfer Lee Westwood was unable to capitalise on his lead going into the final round of The Open. The Claret Jug was won by American Phil Mickelson, who carded a fantastic final round of 66.

Neil is no stranger to British sporting success, with his successful rugby career culminating in the 2003 World Cup victory over Australia. As a massive supporter of British sports, he hopes that the country's sporting success continues into the future.
