England & British Lions star helps Norwich Rugby Football Club celebrate at the annual dinner

By on 30th April in Fun

Norwich Rugby Club was very pleased to entertain guests at its end of season Annual Dinner which took place at the club on Thursday evening.

The club were thrilled to welcome to this year’s dinner their special guest of honour: former England, British & Irish Lions player and 2003 World Cup winner Ben Kay.  Ben kept the audience entertained with tales of events that had happened during his career.

300 diners gathered to draw down the curtain on another season and what a great season it has been with the 1st XV being promoted for the first time in 12 years.  Successes for Swaffham, North Walsham and Wymondham in gaining promotion too have made it a great year for Norfolk rugby.
