A big thank you from me to all involved in the Ireland Legends V England Legends game on last Friday evening 26th Febuary 2016.

It was great to meet up with so many players I had played with and against during my playing career. The craic and the banter never changes. It’s what rugby is all about.

Thank you to the management and kit men who provided their time to a worthy cause.

Thank you to our main sponsors Harvey Thornycroft along with SportingClass, VALIDUS RE, Canterbury,  Gilbert, IPA, POSITIV, JAC and salesforce.

A big thank you also to all the fantastic rugby “nutters” (apologies, I mean rugby fans) who supportered the game and the charities the proceeds of the game are going to.  There were 6,000 off you I believe.

Thank you to Harlequins for hosting a really enjoyable game. It may not have looked like it from the stands but it was a really fast game and  the hits were going in. It was great to play in a game with so much talent on display. It may be old talent but all the lads have still got it!!

The money raised will go to the following charities, IRFU Charitable Trust, IRUPA, RFU Injured Players Association, RESTART Rugby and the Lewis Moody Foundation.
