NYC | 2018

23rd March 2018 | N.Y.A.C 180 Central Park South, New York


Our 10th Rugby Legends Dinner brought together some legends from the 90’s, Doddie Weir (Scotland and British Irish Lions), Shane Byrne (Ireland and British & Irish Lions) and Simon Shaw (England & British & Irish Lions). The sell-out audience rose to their feet to welcome Doddie to the room as the rugby community, from around the word, continues to rally behind Doddie’s bravery, following his diagnosis of ALS. Doddie was on riotous form, stealing the show from our auctioneer Hugh Hildesley (Sothebys) and leading the panel on a 90’s rucking demonstration on host, Jeremy Guscott. The NBC rugby punditry team of Dan Lyle (USA), Alex Corbisiero (England and British & Irish Lions) and Phaidra Knight (USA) had earlier led a discussion discussing the current USA Rugby landscape.

Other notable guests included Welsh International Darren Morris and USA Eagles, Lara Vivolo and Tiffany Faee. From the world of WWE, retired wrestler and now Fox Business host and rugby lover, John ‘Bradfield’ Layfield.
