Seven men involved in Gareth Edwards’ famous try against New Zealand in 1973 are reuniting for a charity dinner in Cardiff. Rugby fans can buy their tickets now to be part of this special event that will raise money for five Welsh charities.
The dinner is being organised by the Welsh Charitables RFC and takes place at the Mecure Holland House Hotel on Friday 25 October. Tickets cost £50 for a five-course dinner, coffee and a free drinks reception on arrival.
David said: “That try for the Barbarians is regarded as many as the greatest try ever scored. Cliff Morgan’s commentary as the ball is passed among the team is thrilling. Rugby fans that come along to this dinner will be part of a special night in the company of seven of the team who made that try happen.
“Phil Bennett, JPR Williams, John Pullin, John Dawes, Tom David, Derek Quinnell and Gareth Edwards will re-live the game and that great try as we have ‘Dinner With The Magnificent Seven.’”
All money raised at the dinner will go to the Welsh Charitables RFC Benevolent Fund who supports St Anne’s Hospice, WREX the Welsh Former International Players Benevolent Association, TY Hafan the family hospice for young lives, The Princes Trust Cymru and St David’s Hospice Care.
