As the battle for the Six Nations championship continues, former Welsh international captain Ryan Jones is set to launch the 2020 season of events for the M4 Business Network.

On Tuesday, March 3, Jones, will join more than 160 members and guests of the M4 Business Network at the Celtic Manor Resort for its first breakfast event of the year. Those joining the network’s first event will have the chance to hear tales from the pitch from the man who in 2008 marked his first Six Nations tournament as captain by leading his team to it’s second Grand Slam in four years.

A three-time Grand Slam winner, Ryan represented Wales 75 times during his international career in addition to making three appearances for the British and Irish Lions. His record 33 caps for Wales stood until 2015 when he was surpassed by Sam Warburton and a reoccurring shoulder injury necessitated his retirement from rugby.

M4 Business Network chairman and managing partner of UHY Hacker Young Paul Byett said: “It will be a pleasure to welcome back our members for what is set to be one of our most interesting years. I’m sure that many of us will have spent the last few weekends following the Six Nations’ and we are all keen to hear how one of Wales’ most successful players and captain’s thoughts on the championships developments as Super Saturday draws closer.”

Current sponsors of the club include UHY Hacker Young Chartered Accountants, the Development Bank of Wales, University of South Wales, Working Word, Barclays Business, Thomas Carroll, The Celtic Manor, Newport City Council, McAlister & Co Insolvency Practitioners, Rubin Lewis O’Brien, Johnsey Estates, and Gavel Auctioneers.
