Monday 29th November 2010 KO 6.30pm
What began as a cheeky Twitter chat about which player has the best bum in rugby has turned into an amazing opportunity to bring together both players and supporters at a star-studded black tie dinner and auction evening to raise funds for Beating Bowel Cancer, through the unusual medium of appreciating the 'assets' of some of the country's highest profile rugby players!
Dinner • Dance • Auction
Hosted in the Live Room at Twickenham Stadium by ex-England and Leicester Tigers hero Austin Healey, the inaugural Bottom of the Ruck Awards night will consist of a champagne reception, a three course formal dinner, top entertainment and silent and live auctions. Auction pledges include some completely unique signed items from the players themselves, ticket packages to forthcoming Aviva Premiership matches and an astonishing experience day with the Red Arrows.
Despite its alternative start, the team hopes this will become a major annual event in the season’s rugby calendar. The combined appeal of the cheeky concept, the players’ attendance and the prestige and reputation of the venue should make the first Bottom of the Ruck Awards an unmissable evening.
Confirmed rugby stars attending include:
- James Haskell
- Danny Care
- Nick Kennedy
- Delon Armitage
- Paul Hodgson
- Topsy Ojo
- Nils Mordt
- Schalk Brits
- Ugo Monye
Tickets for the Bottom of the Ruck Awards Dinner at the Live Room, Twickenham Stadium are available to our readers at the exclusive reduced rate of £70 per head [just mention "Rugby Unplugged"when booking], and available via:

ABOUT THE CHARITY
Beating Bowel Cancer is a leading UK charity for bowel cancer patients, working to raise awareness of symptoms, promote early diagnosis and encourage open access to treatment choice for those affected by bowel cancer. Through our work we aim to save lives from this common cancer.
The charity was founded in 1999 and is based in Teddington, Middlesex. We are committed to improving bowel cancer awareness amongst both the medical profession and the general public. The charity provides authoritative information about the disease, its symptoms, what to do if diagnosed, and what treatment choices are available to you. We encourage people to communicate frankly about all aspects of this disease, and not to be embarrassed to talk about bottoms and bowels!
We have a committed team of both staff and volunteers dedicated to helping fight against bowel cancer. We are grateful to the many people who do a fantastic job of raising money for the charity and indebted to our corporate sponsors who provide invaluable support for our work.
