A man that is so revered in rugby circles, it was only fitting to see him claim the prize for 'Outstanding Contribution to Rugby.'
Presented at the Zurich England Send Off Dinner at Twickenham Stadium, this award was the main award of the evening and recognised the feats of an individual who through their conduct, talent and dedication has inspired both fans and fellow players alike and provided the game of rugby with a lasting legacy.
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
