Top Sporting Achievement: At 30 years old, James has already won a 58 Caps for the England international rugby team, and is currently captain of the London Wasps. Better Half: He is currently in a relationship with daughter of daytime TV gods Richard and Judy, Chloe Madeley. Best Attribute: James is serving what we like to call a total body experience: standing at 6ft 4ins and weighing-in at 18 stone, that’s a lot of muscle. Sporting Quote: James's work ethic extends off the pitch: “We're not like footballers. When I stop playing rugby I'll need another job.” Special Weapon: He's a big fan of mixed martial arts, and tends to focus on Jiu-Jitsu as he believes it’s great for footwork and placement. Style: With a very relaxed laid back sense of style, he's usually seen in a fitted t-shirt and denim jeans... though often less. Training Tip: James is a fitness junkie, and even has his own fitness company where he devises diet and exercise plans for clients - that'll be that post-rugby job he was on about sorted then. In The Game: He's a flanker, responsible for attacking the ball in scrums, rucks and mauls, and generally getting bloodied-up a fair bit. Wins: 58 caps for England and a combined 139 for London Wasps during his two stints with the team. Attitude: Check (Issue 233, July 2013 to be exact). Oh that's not what you meant? Okay then: “All I can control is my own performance, my work ethic and my dedication is still right up there”. More stories: Sporting Heroes Month: Ben Foden Sporting Heroes Month: Louis Smith
