Seven to be inducted into Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame

JWilkinson-1208

Jonny Wilkinson, Lawrence Dallaglio, Josh Lewsey, Phil Vickery and Simon Shaw will be inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame next month.

The quintet of Rugby World Cup winners will be honoured with James Simpson-Daniel and Peter Wheeler at a glittering dinner at London's HAC on 2 September to mark their contribution to Premiership Rugby.

The seven household names will be joined by other illustrious faces from the English club game at a dinner that will raise funds for Sport Relief and Restart Rugby, the Rugby Players Association’s charity.

"The Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame is in its third year and we are looking forward to welcoming these seven legends of the game into this prestigious club, at this wonderful event," said Premiership Rugby's CSR and Community Director Wayne Morris.

"The Hall of Fame has raised thousands of pounds for Comic Relief already and our partnership with the RPA means that Restart Rugby will be a beneficiary this year as well."

Last year saw Lewis Moody, Martin Johnson, George Chuter, referee Ed Morrison and the late Tom Walkinshaw inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame.

RPA Group CEO, Damian Hopley, said: "Restart Rugby is extremely honoured to have been chosen as one of the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame’s benefiting charities and we are looking forward to celebrating the careers of the inductees at what will be a fantastic event."

The event will be a spectacular evening celebrating 17 years of Premiership Rugby with a drinks reception, three-course dinner and entertainment.

A very limited number of tables are left and if you'd like to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in world rugby email Gervase Milbourn at gervase.milbourn@rtltd.com

Tables for this gala charity event cost £2,495 +VAT with all profits being split 50:50 between Sport Relief and Restart Rugby.
