The 41st edition of the Tournament will feature a fundraising dinner - An Evening with Rugby Legends - featuring one of the undoubted legends of the game, former World Champion Wallaby Owen Finnegan.
The event which will be held on the 10th November 2010 at PJ Hilton at 7.00 will present exciting opportunities for corporate sponsor to contribute towards rugby development in Malaysia.
Owen Finnegan is one of the most decorated rugby players of his generation and was a member of the all-conquering Wallabies side of the last decade. His most enduring moment was scoring the winning try in the 1999 World Cup.
Owen is currently pursuing his second Masters degree while delivering corporate motivational seminars to large corporations, and undertakes business development roles for a number of high profile organisations. He will be accompanied by 3 other legends of the game, namely ex-All Blacks Duncan Robertson and Jeff Matheson, and ex-Wallaby Chris Roche. The Master-of-Ceremonies is former marathon champion and current sports commentator Paul Allison.
Part of the proceeds from the dinner will be donated to Rumah Nur Salam, through a charity auction by the Helping Hands Group. Rumah Nur Salam, is a 24–hour children’s crisis and Drop-In centre in Chow Kit. COBRA has initiated this CR initiative to help the children of Rumah Nur Salam by also introducing programmes that draw on the positive attributes of sports - emphasizing teamwork, physical health, perseverance and commitment.
