One of England's 2003 Rugby World Cup heroes is playing a visit to Welwyn this month.

The Hobbs Way-based rugby club will host Kyran Bracken on May 25 for a charity dinner in aid of The Wooden Spoon, for whom Bracken is an honorary president, and proceeds from the night will go to improving the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in Hertfordshire.

Bracken won 51 caps for England and captained his country on three occasions.

You may also want to watch:

His first cap was against New Zealand at Twickenham in 1993 when the All Black's Jamie Joseph notoriously trampled on his leg early in the match and left Bracken hobbling through the rest of the match, determined not to give any playing time to rival Matt Dawson.

It is open to all with a dress code of jacket and tie or smart casual.
