We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to join us for a special ‘87 RWC lunch as we reunite 5 members of Wales’ most successful Welsh squad in the tournament’s history. Joining us to share memories of the inaugural RWC will be Jonathan Davies MBE, Robert Jones, Adrian Hadley, Mark Ring and Richard Webster. The lunch will be held at the luxurious Morgans Swansea on Friday 13th September, 2019.
The Wales ’87 squad to this day is the most successful Welsh side in the tournament’s history. After beating England in the quarter-final 16-3, Wales were defeated by New Zealand in the semi-final in Brisbane. Wales headed for a play-off to Rotorua against the Wallabies and this was to prove a memorable conclusion for Richard Moriarty’s men. It was a thrilling, topsy-turvy affair, with the balance of power switching back and forth as the sides shared 5 tries. Yet in the dying seconds, Wales rolled the dice one last time and a sweeping move ended with winger Adrian Hadley crossing in the left corner. Showing nerves of steel, full-back Paul Thorburn landed the conversion to win the game and earn Wales the title of third-best team in the world.
The afternoon will commence at 1:00pm and will include a sumptuous three-course lunch, charitable raffle and auction. The dress-code is smart/casual.
