Two more rugby legends are being honoured next month by being inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame.

Mark Cueto and Hugh Vyvyan will join Rugby World Cup winners Mike Tindall, Richard Hill and Neil Back by being inducted at a glittering event on 13 October at the HAC in London.

Presented by David Flatman the dinner will raise money for Premiership Rugby’s four official charities – Sport Relief, Movember Foundation, Wooden Spoon and Restart Rugby, the official charity of the RPA.

Last year Jonny Wilkinson was inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame on an unforgettable night, alongside Peter Wheeler, Lawrence Dallaglio, Phil Vickery, Josh Lewsey, James Simpson-Daniel and Simon Shaw.

Cueto ended his career as Premiership Rugby’s leading try-scorer, crossing the line an incredible 90 times while Vyvyan played an impressive 245 Premiership Rugby matches for Saracens and Newcastle Falcons.

This year the five inductees will be joined by other illustrious names from the English club game including Ugo Monye and current Hall of Famer Lawrence Dallaglio who will be attending the big night to unite the famous back row from the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

“The Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame is your chance to rub shoulders with your heroes,” said Premiership Rugby’s CSR and Community Director Wayne Morris.

“In its fourth year, we’re looking forward to welcoming these legends of the game into this prestigious club, at this wonderful event.

“The Hall of Fame has raised thousands of pounds for Comic Relief and Restart Rugby already and we are delighted to confirm our other official charity partners, Movember Foundation and Wooden Spoon, will also be beneficiaries this year as well.”

The event will be a spectacular evening celebrating two decades of Premiership Rugby with a drinks reception, three-course dinner and entertainment.
