Mike Tindall and Keith Senior go face to face in charity rugby match on Sunday 12 September, kick off 3pm.
This September, we are teaming up with Rugby for Heroes and the Rob Burrow foundation to host Battle of the Codes: The Return. The match will see Rugby World Cup winner, and charity patron, Mike Tindall, captain a rugby union side against a rugby league team skippered by England and GB legend, and charity ambassador, Keith Senior.
In what promises to be a highly competitive and entertaining match, the two men will lead teams studded with former internationals and stars of the two codes, including the likes of Thinus Delport, Marcel Garvey, Ryan Lamb, Wayne Godwin, Darrell Griffin and Marcus St Hilaire.
To date, there have been three battles – rugby league took the first scalp in Gloucester in 2016 followed up by a narrow 28-26 victory in Hull in June 2018. In their most recent meeting on March 30 2019, the union side finally got a win, beating the league team 48-34.
We are proudly supporting the match. Chief Operating Officer, Alex Brown said “We are excited to welcome Rugby for Heroes back to Kingsholm Stadium for the Battle of the Codes in September.
Rugby For Heroes is a fantastic charity that works with the Rugby Community to raise funds and awareness for military personnel who are making the transition to civilian life.
We are delighted Kingsholm Stadium will be used as a platform to raise awareness and funds for Rugby for Heroes and we are looking forward to welcoming fans back to enjoy the Battle of the Codes.”
