Saracens legend Hill to be inducted into Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame
Saracens' icon Richard Hill is on of three three rugby legends who are being honoured later this year by being inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame.
Hill, alongside fellow Rugby World Cup winners Mike Tindall and Neil Back will be inducted at a glittering event on 13 October at the HAC in London.
Presented by David Flatman the dinner will raise money for Premiership Rugby's four official charities - Sport Relief, Movember Foundation, Wooden Spoon and Restart Rugby, the official charity of the RPA.
Last year Jonny Wilkinson was inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame on an unforgettable night, alongside Peter Wheeler, Lawrence Dallaglio, Phil Vickery, Josh Lewsey, James Simpson-Daniel and Simon Shaw.
This year the trio of Rugby World Cup winners will be joined by other illustrious names from the English club game including current Hall of Famer Lawrence Dallaglio who will be attending the big night to unite the famous back row from the 2003 Rugby World Cup.
And in the coming weeks Premiership Rugby will announce a number of other inductees for the glittering event on 13 October.
“The Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame is your chance to rub shoulders with your heroes. In its fourth year,we’re looking forward to welcoming these legends of the game into this prestigious club, at this wonderful event,” said Premiership Rugby's CSR and Community Director Wayne Morris.
“The Hall of Fame has raised thousands of pounds for Comic Relief and Restart Rugby already and we are delighted to confirm our other official charity partners, Movember Foundation and Wooden Spoon, will also be beneficiaries this year as well.”
The event will be a spectacular evening celebrating 18 years of Premiership Rugby with a drinks reception, three-course dinner and entertainment.
