London Wasps invite you to a day (and night) in the company of rugby royalty as Wasps' greats of now and then come together for some rugby and revelry to celebrate Lawrence Dallaglio's last game.
Wasps past and present will be at Adams Park on Sunday 25th May to play three games of exhibition rugby to mark Lawrence Dallaglio's retirement at the end of the season. See over 50 stars of rugby, including Lawrence's former team-mates and men who had an important influence on his career as they take the pitch against the current London Wasps 1XV squad in celebration of one of Wasps' greatest players of all time.
London Wasps 1XV, led by Dallaglio, will face three teams of former players in a mix of TAG, touch and full contact games. First up will be the Golden Oldies, a team of former internationals including Roger Uttley (England & British Lions), Bill Treadwell (England) Hamish Keith (Scotland) and Wasps Director of Rugby, Ian McGeechan (Scotland & British Lions), who will take on Dallaglio and Co in a 15 minute game of TAG rugby.
Next out of the tunnel will be Wasps stars of the 80s. Former England internationals Jeff Probyn, Paul Rendall, Steve Bates, Rob Lozowski and Huw Davies plus Wasps greats Mark Rigby, Buster White and Francis Emeruwa will pull on the black and gold jersey again for half an hour of touch rugby.

Finally, the current Wasps Legends will take the field for 40 minutes of full contact against the 1XV. Witness 2004 Heineken Cup hero Rob Howley sending Kenny Logan dancing up the wing, backed by Will Green, Phil Greening, Damian Cronin, Andy Reed, Mark Denney, Jonny Ufton, Shane Roisier and our Commercial Director, Peter Scrivener, who could be a marked man!
Finally those still standing will attend a sell out gala dinner for 300 that evening, as Wasps gather to raise a final toast to the great man's career.
The rugby kicks off at 3pm and tickets will be available from London Wasps' box office, priced from £15 to £25 with all kids going for a fiver.
