A World Cup-winning former Leicester Tigers player is hosting a rugby-themed quiz at Harborough Golf Club on Friday, October 16, from 7pm.

Brad Thorn, who won the Rugby World Cup with New Zealand in 2011, will be interviewed during the quiz – in which teams of up to six people are invited to take part in six rounds of multimedia questions.

According to Andrew McKenna, pastor of Christchurch, which is organising the event, said: “The evening promises to be a great night out on the eve of the world cup quarter-finals. Brad Thorn is a special rugby player, having represented two countries in two different codes, winning the world cup with the All Blacks. This is a great chance to hear about his life and career.”

Entrance is £6 per person (over 16s only) which includes a fish and chip supper. Email james.dargie@britvic.co.uk or phone 07808 097679 to book.
