Golf Day for 6 With Lawrence Dallaglio and Jeremy Guscott
An incredible experience for six people to join two Lions legends for a day of golf!
Lawrence and Jeremy will join you for the whole experience: breakfast, then a round of golf (two four balls), followed by drinks and a light lunch.
Dallaglio could have played international rugby for Italy or Ireland, but chose his native England, enjoying a 12-year international career. During that time he went on three Lions Tours, playing all three Tests in the historic 1997 Series win in South Africa. Dallaglio was used at blindside for the first two Tests before shifting to No.8 for the third. With England, he went on to be part of the 2003 squad that claimed World Cup glory, and also captained his side on 22 occasions. At international level he also won the Championship on four occasions and was a Sevens World Cup winner with England in 1993.
Guscott will forever be remembered for kicking the winning drop goal in the second Test against the Springboks, which secured a Series victory on the 1997 Tour to South Africa. That was the last of three Tours for Guscott, after he made his Lions debut as an injury replacement in Australia in 1989, where he also made a Series-winning contribution in the second and third Tests against the Wallabies. He also started all three Tests during the 1993 Tour to New Zealand. Former England coach Sir Clive Woodward called Guscott the ‘Prince of Centres’ and he made 65 England appearances between 1989 and 1999, scoring a hat-trick in his debut against Romania. He spent his entire club career with Bath Rugby, for whom he made 266 appearances and scored 710 points.
The full profit from this auction will go to The British & Irish Lions Trust - the official charity of The British & Irish Lions.
The Lions Trust exists to connect with, nurture and support all Lions players in need, whilst furthering the spirit, values and ethos of The British & Irish Lions throughout rugby clubs across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The Trust contributes to the Lions responsibility to the past while also helping protect the future of rugby’s most special sporting and social entity. A key priority is the welfare of Lions players who can’t access the necessary financial, medical and appropriate complementary support required to live in a dignified manner. The Trust also seeks to nurture ongoing relationships with all Lions, to recognise and celebrate the contributions they have made to building the Lions legacy both on and off the field. Finally, The Lions Trust is committed to the promotion and, where appropriate, direct support of any Home Union initiative that broadens and deepens connection with the Lions and our ethos among grassroots clubs, communities and players at all levels.
