Dine with rugby stars at Wales vs England preview dinner

Following on from last year's superb event at Pittville Pump Room in Cheltenham, Aitch and Aitch Bee are returning for another top-quality rugby preview dinner.

The dinner on Tuesday, February 19 will centre around the Wales vs England Six Nations clash that will take place in Cardiff just a few days after.

Aitch and Aitch Bee are delighted to welcome two former captains to this year's event to discuss the match and their careers:

Will Carling OBE played 72 times for England, with a then record 59 as Captain leading England to 3 Grand Slams, 4 Triple Crowns and the final of RWC 1991. Carling was also selected for the Lions on their 1993 tour to New Zealand.

Robert Jones MBE won a then record 54 caps for his country including featuring at 3 RWCs. He was also selected for two Lions Tours including playing a key role in the series win against Australia in 1989 where he is perhaps best remembered for his tussles with Wallaby Scrum Half, Nick Farr-Jones.

The events are organised by Aitch and Aitch Bee and sponsored by Moose Marketing and PR and www.Punchline-Gloucester.com.

Mark Owen, editor of Punchline-Gloucester said: "Being a welsh man, im really excited to meet Robert and the other chap. It should be a great night and hopefully together we can raise a lot of money for a very good cause.

Demand is high and tickets are selling fast, so we would urge people who would like to attend to purchase tickets as soon as possible."
