Help for Heroes

Big Dai over at Confessions of a Rugby Referee is, quite rightly, promoting the Help for Heroes match at Twickenham on 20th September when a Lawrence Dallaglio XV will take on a Scott Gibbs XV.

All the money raised from the match will be donated to the Help for Heroes charity which assists servicemen injured in battle get back on their feet.

The match will involve legends like Martin Johnson, Jonah Lomu and Will Greenwood as well as the likes of Dan Luger, Mark Regan and Martin "Chariots" Offiah. And if that wasn't enough to convince you, the Scott Gibbs XV is to be coached by steady Eddie O'Sullivan, no less

And if none of that impresses you, the entertainment also includes those rather nice young ladies from Escala.

To help our wounded by buying tickets to the game, please click here. And if you can't make it, why not take a leaf out of Big Dai's book. As he expects to be refereeing a bunch of ingrates that afternoon he has decided to donate all his expenses for the day and bit more to the cause - good man. He's also suggested that all teams around the country up their match fee a couple of quid and donate that to the cause, sacrificing a couple of pints each for those that have sacrificed a lot more. Or alternatively, might I suggest, the tightwads could just spend a bit more!
