The England Legends' team will be led by former captain and British and Irish Lion Martin Corry, and will include several members of the 2003 World Cup winning team.

England's most-capped player, Jason Leonard, will return to his former home ground, to take part. Other heroes of 2003 include Jason Robinson, Paul Grayson, Mark Regan and Josh Lewsey. They'll be joined by other recent internationals: Richard Cockerill, Tim Stimpson, Matt Perry, Gareth Archer, Dan Luger and Ben Clarke.

    Great idea, would be nice to see more events like this in SA. Would actually rather go watch this game then the one on saturday. Would be great to see Joost playing again, true genius on the field. Miss his comentry actually, one of the few straight shooters, pity his personnal life got him fired.
