Bring a friend to rugby 2016

9 months ago By paul makinen

It's back! Got friends who play rugby? Bring them down and you could be watching England's finest at Twickenham on 19 November.

After its success last year, which saw four lucky Bedians witness England's 60-3 hammering of Uruguay at the Rugby World Cup, we're repeating the exercise this year - with a chance of being at Twickenham, for England v Fiji on 19 November.

To win, you just need to persuade as many of your friends, family, colleagues or blokes you meet in the street to come and play for Old Bedians on or before Saturday 29 October.

Two tickets will be awarded to the player or member who recruits the largest number of new players. This person can rightly claim to be 'King of Recruitment' at Bedes!

But if that wasn't enough, everyone who recruits at a new player gets a second bite of the cherry! All players recruiting at least one new player will be entered into a draw to win one further pair of tickets. To keep it competitive, each new player recruited gives you an entry into the draw - so if you recruit 3 players, your chance of winning is tripled! And, as an extra bonus, if your friend is a prop, their entry counts as double!

How to enter
To enter, all you have to do is fill in the online form at before Thurs 27 October. New players don't need to have played before you submit their entry as all 'new' players will be verified by team captains. Make sure you fill in the form for each friend you recruit - you get one entry for each friend who plays so more friends recruited = more chance of winning!

Full rules are here: but if you have any questions, just ask your team captain or email
