England playing for Duncombe charity

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

The fund was set up in memory of the NEC Harlequins and England scrum-half who tragically died in February 2003 at the age of just 21.

Now Zurich have confirmed that for every point scored by Clive Woodward's men in Australia 2003, they will donate £10 to the fund which was set up to finance future youth development projects and for a statue/physical memorial in Duncombe's memory at The Stoop – the home ground of NEC Harlequins.

Tony Copsey, Managing Director of NEC Harlequins, said: "Nick was an amazingly talented young scrum-half and if circumstances had been different he may well have been part of the England set-up this autumn.

"We plan to use the donations to his fund to set up a permanent memorial to Nick here at The Stoop."
