EXTREME athletes Ben Savage (current trial riding world champion), Darryl Brown (mountain bike world record holder), Matti Hemmings (five-time Guinness World Recorder holder), Scott Wilson (former MTB Trials World champion) and James Jones (Welsh BMX champion) will take over the West Car Park at Twickenham Stadium before the match, providing demonstrations on various ramps and obstacles.

The build up to kick-off in the stadium will see further action around the hallowed turf of Twickenham Stadium. The riders will combine with free runners, Bogdan Pascal and Luke Madigan, to create an engaging and jaw dropping display. The eagerly anticipated ball delivery is going to be the most daring to date.

This pre-match show will be synchronised to a bespoke music mix by a world leading music producer, highlighting tracks that will remind supporters of 2016, a year to remember.
