Bring a friend to rugby 2017

By paul makinen

We're running our annual player recruitment drive again - here's how you could be watching England play Samoa on 25 November!

Have friends who might want to play rugby? Fancy watching England v Samoa at Twickenham Saturday 25 November?

To win, you just need to persuade as many of your friends, family, colleagues or blokes you meet in the street to come and play for Old Bedians on or before Saturday 11 November 2017.

Two tickets will be awarded to the player or member who recruits the largest number of new players. This person can rightly claim to be 'King of Recruitment' at Bedes!

But if that wasn't enough, everyone who recruits at a new player gets a second bite of the cherry! All players recruiting at least one new player will be entered into a draw to win one further pair of tickets. To keep it competitive, each new player recruited gives you an entry into the draw - so if you recruit 3 players, your chance of winning is tripled! And, as an extra bonus, if your friend is a prop, their entry counts as double!

How to enter
To enter, all you have to do is fill in the online form at before Friday 10 November. New players don't need to have played before you submit their entry as all 'new' players will be verified by team captains. Make sure you fill in the form for each friend you recruit - you get one entry for each friend who plays so more friends recruited = more chance of winning!

Full rules are here: but if you have any questions, just ask your team captain or email
