South Hemisphere Rugby Heroes Join Classics Rugby Tournament in October

Here is a once in a life-time opportunity to see some of the players you have loved and respected once again show off their tremendous power, agility and prowess on the rugby field. The Classics Rugby tournament takes place at Richmond Athletic Ground over three weekends in October and culminates on Saturday 31st October when the Classics Lions play a World XV team made up of some of the greatest rugby icons of all time. Tickets and names of the players are available from

Classics Rugby is the brain-child of former British Lions and Welsh great Allan Martin, who says, “I’ve been organising Classics Rugby for over 27 years with matches in Bermuda and this RWC year is the perfect time to bring the matches to the UK.  Classics Rugby is a great vehicle for players who still have a high level of fitness, skill and ability to play against former adversaries and in doing so bring pleasure to rugby supporters and raise money for good causes and charities.” 

“We’ve got some of the biggest names in Southern Hemisphere rugby ‘back in their boots’ for the World XV match. Carlos Spencer was the third highest ever points scorer for NZ; Reuben Thorne was a former captain for NZ; Stefan Terblanche has 37 caps for SA; Felipe Contepomi has 87 caps and is Argentina’s most capped player; Andrew Walker was the first player to represent Australia in Rugby League and Rugby Union.  The list of their achievements is endless and we can all look forward to a thrilling match against our own Classic Lions players.”
