Behind Closed Doors with Dylan Hartley – Virtual Hospitality

Unfortunately the Guinness Six Nations 2021 will be played behind closed doors, however we are providing premium virtual hospitality for the final day fixture as Ireland take on England at the Aviva.

Check out the preview of our event below and register your interest today to be part of a unique and interactive experience.

England v Ireland was a huge match in the first ever Autumn Nations Cup and although we couldn’t entertain in the stadium, we were delighted to entertain some of our clients with our ‘Behind Closed Doors’ Virtual Hospitality Package.

 

Behind Closed Doors – Dylan Hartley and Alex Payne are joined by the fantastic Jimmy Garcia to create the perfect pre-match meal with all of the premium ingredients that our clients were sent. Guests watched the full video to learn how to cook the three courses to restaurant quality, whilst listening to the guys give some exclusive insights around the relationship between food and rugby.

Dylan pours the pints for the guys as Jimmy whips up a special crumpet based starter, an incredible steak main course accompanied by a beautiful red wine and a sticky toffee pudding to finish, all easily made on gameday.

This is just a part of the package, as guests also received a live pre-match chat virtually with Alex Goode and Alex Payne. This was accompanied by hand-crafted snacks, a bottle of bubbles and other gifts to have alongside the game.

We’re delighted with our first exciting venture into virtual events and we can’t wait to bring you more options. Our next confirmed ‘Behind Closed Doors’ event will be Ireland v England in the Six Nations on 20th March.

Our range of events is expanding to Cocktail Masterclass, Tequila and Taco Night, Virtual Pub Quiz, Wine and Cheese Tasting Night and many more to come.

We are also getting ready for an extremely busy year of live sport as major competitions across the world of sport are being prepared in 2021. When it’s safe, we will be on hand to host you with our world-class hospitality packages.

An Exciting Start for England Rugby in 2018

England v Italy, Twickenham 2013

Eddie Jones renews contract until 2021

Great news for all England fans, with the announcement that hugely successful coach Eddie Jones will continue until 2021. He will be working closely with the RFU in selecting the next chief of staff by the end of the 2019-20 season, hoping to maintain the new-found status quo.

Jones has won 22 of his 23 Tests since taking the role in November 2015, and says extending his deal was “not a difficult decision”.

The big question on everyone’s lips, and surely a guarded secret, is whether Eddie Jones will be at the helm for what would surely be the jewel in the crown. If Eddie Jones led the British and Irish Lions to victory in South Africa it would mark the first time since the 1950s that the Lions toured all three nations without conceding a series.

Italy vs. England Squad Announcement

Eddie Jones has selected eight uncapped players to face Italy on the 4th February at the Stadio Olympico.

Five fresh young forwards in the squad will have their mettle tested, as the Italians are well known for their aggression up front in the mauls and breakdowns.

When Italy came to Twickenham, they employed cunning tactics to try and disrupt the momentum of England. Fans are left wondering what they will have up their sleeve come Sunday.

England have never been beaten by the Azzurri, so hopes are high that a young-looking England team can maintain the current 95% win-rate, spurred on by the knowledge that Eddie Jones tenure is set to continue.
