Inductee: Martin Johnson

Premiership Rugby confirmed on Thursday it is set to induct six individuals into its Hall of Fame at a ceremony on January 22.

Tom Walkinshaw, Martin Johnson, Rob Baxter, Ed Morrison, Lewis Moody and George Chuter are the inductees.

The sextet of rugby legends will become part of a select group of players, coaches, officials and administrators to be part of English club rugby's only Hall of Fame.

Johnson, Baxter, Morrison, Chuter and Moody will be present, while Walkinshaw - who passed away in 2010 - will be represented by his son Ryan, currently the majority shareholder at Gloucester.

The Dinner will raise money for both Sport Relief and The Supporters Club.

"The six men represent a who's who of professional club rugby in England and we are delighted to welcome them into our Hall of Fame," said Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.

"In the list we have two Rugby World Cup winners, one of Aviva Premiership Rugby's leading coaches, a man who refereed a Rugby World Cup Final, a player who played more than 200 Premiership matches and a club owner who left an indelible mark on the game here in England. A formidable line-up.

"The Hall of Fame Dinner has become a significant date in the rugby calendar as it gives us a chance to look back on 18 years of professional rugby in England."
