Martin Bayfield

Rugby After Dinner Speaker

Rugby After Dinner Speaker

Martin Bayfield - Former British Lions and England Rugby Player, Broadcaster and After-Dinner Speaker.

Martin Bayfield made his debut for England in 1991 and played for the first team until 1998 when a serious neck injury forced him retire from the game. He had won the Rugby Football Player of the Year title in his career span.


He gained a creditable 31 international caps, playing in the 1992 and 1995 Grand Slam sides. He was a part of the 1995 World Cup Squad to play against South Africa and was selected for five out of six tests. Martin also played in all three tests on the British Lions tour to New Zealand.


Martin Bayfield has also represented the Barbarians, Midlands and British Police sides and previous clubs include the Metropolitan Police RUFC, Northampton Saints and Bedford RUFC.


Since retirement Martin has equally moved seamlessly into broadcasting – commentating for the BBC and Radio 5 Live, hosting Five's NFL coverage as well as The World's Strongest Man and most recently covering the Rugby World Cup 2011 for ITV. In March 2012, Martin was confirmed as a regular presenter on BBC1’s long-running Crimewatch, thus cementing his reputation as an accomplished and trusted studio presenter. 


Possibly Martin’s most famous achievement to date is his involvement in the Harry Potter films, where he played Robbie Coltrane's body double as the giant Rubeus Hagrid. 


Standing at 6 feet 10 inches and weighing around 20 stones, Martin Bayfield makes an excellent addition to any top table with his entertaining rugby related anecdotes.


Aside from being a very in-demand after dinner speaker, Martin is a fantatsic host, MC and auctioneer.
