The RFU’s weekend of celebrations to mark the 10th anniversary of England’s World Cup glory will begin on Thursday, October 31 when Sportingclass & HTL bring the Australia Legends to play the England Legends at Twickenham Stoop.
Sportingclass & HTL are working closely with England Legend player-managers Jason Leonard & Martin Corry to recreate the RWC-winning squad of 2003 as well as bringing over the renowned names from Australia of Tim Horan, Jason Little, Phil Waugh and more.
Be part of this marked occasion and join in the celebrations. This is a wonderful opportunity to see the heroes of that day in action together once again.
The evening match will be a fun, exciting and entertaining evening for all to enjoy and tickets are priced accordingly.
England heroes on the team list include Jason Leonard, Martin Corry, Mark Regan, Andy Gomarsall, Ben Cohen, Lewis Moody, Austin Healey & Josh Lewsey as well as support team Richard Hill, Matt Dawson, Paul Grayson & Danny Grewcock. Memories of the 2003 World Cup final will be revived when Matt Cockbain, Al Baxter, Chris Whitaker, Richard Harry and Horan take to the pitch.

Sportingclass & Harvey Thorneycroft, custodians of the England Legends, have over the past four years raised in excess of £400,000 for rugby charities via Legends matches played against Ireland, France, South Africa and invitational sides.
The England Legends, captained by Martin Corry and managed by Jason Leonard, will take on the Australia Legends in October 2013 recreating in part the victorious World Cup team of 2003.
All proceeds from the Legends match will go to two rugby charities – the Rugby Football Union's Injured Players Foundation (IPF) and the Rugby Players Association's Restart.
