Hammers Legends play in the English and Irish Legends game!

Each year, the night before the England vs Ireland 6 nations clash, English and Irish Rugby stars of yesteryear take to the field to raise money for those who have suffered life-changing injuries playing our wonderful game. Now in its 14th year, the Rugby legends match has raised over £1.4 million pounds for charities like the RFU and IRFU’s injured players foundations.

Hammersmith & Fulham RFC are a huge supporter of this event and this cause, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds in memory of our clubmate Stuart Mangan, who passed away in 2009 as result of injuries sustained during a match the year before. In recognition of these efforts, two Hammers players are invited to take to the field for each side whenever the fixture is played in England.

This year, Ed Clark and Rogan were honoured to pull on the boots, roared on by a healthy Hammers contingent. Great work to all, and we’ll see you when the fixture next returns!
