RWC2015 Trophy Tour Gloucestershire “Rugby Family” Dinner

The national RWC2015 Trophy Tour was in Gloucester on Wed 15th July 2015. Four representatives from the club attended an exclusive dinner held that evening in the 1873 suite at Kingsholm, for 250 members of the Gloucestershire Rugby Family, organised by Gloucestershire Rugby Football Union and Gloucester Rugby.

It was an opportunity for clubs to reward their stalwarts with a fantastic evening and Lucie and Soapy made the most of the night chasing autographs for Gary Taylor’s collection.

A very enjoyable 3 course meal was quickly despatched by the Drybrook representatives – Dean Large in particular impressed everyone by eating two puddings whilst using his free hand to update everyone on face book.

Jason Robinson, a World Cup winner with England in 2003, was the main speaker and he was joined for a Q&A by 2 Gloucester legends of that England World Cup winning side, Phil Vickery and Trevor Woodman.

In addition, the club stalwarts received a photograph of themselves with the Rugby World Cup; a fantastic and unique memento of their evening to show club mates, friends and family.

The evening began at 7pm with dinner served at 7.45pm. The menu was:

Prawn, crab and cucumber cocktail, with a marie rose sauce
