Enjoy a sit-down lunch with a World Cup winning rugby star at Ashton GatePosted on: 11 May 2023
Head down to the home of Bristol Rugby for an afternoon of rugby chat, great food and a few drinks while listening to Jason Robinson OBE talk all things rugby.
Jason Robinson OBE will be at Ashton Gate Stadium from midday on Friday 14 July 2023.
This will be a rare opportunity to catch a candid chat with a sporting legend who reached the summit of both Rugby League and Rugby Union; Jason played in three World Cup finals, scoring England’s only try to help secure the 2003 Rugby Union World Cup in Sydney.

This exciting occasion will see Robinson share the inspirational story of how he overcame a tough upbringing in his hometown of Leeds and his struggles with drinking to enjoy a stellar sporting career.
A star in both codes of rugby, the now 48-year-old ultimately scored the only try that led to England lifting the Webb Ellis Cup 20 years ago. His career as a pro rugby player began in League with Wigan Warriors and he went on to represent the Great Britain, England, and The Rest of the World teams.
However, it was arguably in Rugby Union that Robinson really felt at home, winning an astonishing 51 caps for England as well as playing a leading role in 5 tests for the British and Irish Lions.
Noted for his remarkable speed and fast feet, hence his ‘Billy Wizz’ nickname, Robinson was a prolific scorer, scoring 30 tries in 56 international matches. Furthermore, in 2004, he became the first black man to captain England.
Jason Robinson OBE will be speaking at Ashton Gate Stadium from midday on Friday 14 July 2023. The tables are £750 plus VAT for a table of 10. Limited individual places are available for £75 plus VAT.
