Anthony Watson and Semesa Rokoduguni will make their first start in Bath Rugby's pre-season campaign against Leinster at Donnybrook Stadium in Dublin this Friday (k.o. 19:30).
On Wednesday 2 September we are hosting the third annual Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame at The Honourable Artillery Company, London, EC1Y
It will be a spectacular evening celebrating 17 years of Premiership Rugby with a drinks reception, three-course dinner and entertainment. You will be in the company of some of Premiership Rugby's most illustrious players and the 2015/16 inductees will be announced on the night, but we can reveal that they will include legends of the game like Lawrence Dallaglio and Simon Shaw.
The event is supporting Comic Relief and the Restart, the charity of the Rugby Players' Association.
As one of the UK's biggest fundraising events, Comic Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. All the money raised by the public helps people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries. Your support can help to make a dramatic difference to the lives of these people.
In 2014, Premiership Rugby's award winning social inclusion programme, Hitz, used Comic Relief cash to inspire communities through rugby.
We would very much appreciate your support by booking a table or individual seats. For bookings and further information please call Gervase Milbourn on 020 8334 7877 and firstname.lastname@example.org
