Pride of Lions star at Dronfield’s Omega dinner

Have your say

Three legends of the game were VIP guests at a dinner hosted by Dronfield Rugby Club at Baldwin’s Omega.

British and Irish Lions’ players Phil Bennett, John Bentley and David Powell attended the event along with over 180 guests from the business community and club members and friends.

Each player was chosen for the elite team during a different era, with Phil recalling his tours of New Zealand and South Africa in the 1970s.

John moved from league to union and told how he went on the Lions tour of South Africa in 1997, while David had memories of the Australian and New Zealand tour of 1968.

The trio were celebrated for being highly respected and for their continuing involvement at the highest levels of the game.
