Canterbury to Kit Out Rugby World Cup Legends in a 10-year Anniversary Match

THE REPEAT OF THE 2003 WORLD CUP FINAL … WELL ALMOST!

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of England winning the 2003 Rugby World Cup, Sportingclass and Harvey Thorneycroft Ltd are delighted to present the England v Australia Legends at Twickenham Stoop on Thursday October 31st, kick off is at 7.45pm.

Jason Leonard, Martin Corry, Jason Robinson, Phil Vickery, Josh Lewsey and many other members of the victorious 2003 squad will take on a formidable Australian team, that includes Stirling Mortlock, Al Baxter, Chris Whitaker and Richard Harry – and with a combined total of over 1,450 Test caps, it is certain to be a highly charged, competitive match. Proudly sponsored by Heathrow Express, these legendary players will be dusting off their boots to raise funds for two important charities – Restart and The Injured Players Foundation.

This historic match will mark the start of a truly memorable weekend of celebrations marking 10 years since that unforgettable night when Martin Johnson lifted the Web Ellis Cup. England’s most capped international Jason Leonard said “We are delighted that so many of the boys have leapt at the chance to pull on an England shirt again and honoured that Australian legends are travelling half-way around the world to compete and help us put on a unique, never-to-be-repeated event. We will be raising valuable funds for the nominated rugby charities – it’ll be a great night for any England rugby fan, as well as all our Aussie mates over in the UK”. Both teams will play in a specially made kit from leading rugby brand Canterbury, to commemorate the 10th anniversary match.

World Cup winning former England Head Coach Sir Clive Woodward added, “November 22nd 2003 was a night that none of us will ever forget and it is great that so many of the World Cup winning squad are coming together to take on the Australians in this commemorative fixture. I am sure it will be a great night and although it is 10 years on, the rivalry is still as strong as ever. It should prove to be an interesting game and bring back some happy memories.”

Australian coach, Mike Doyle said “We have been overwhelmed by the interest of the former Wallaby players that we have contacted to be part of this incredible journey. We, as Australian Legends, have a proud history and to be given the chance to redeem the loss is a huge motivation for us.”
