Big Club Dinner 2021: DoddMaster

After the success of last years Big Club Dinner to raise money for local clubs hit financially by Covid-19 as well as My Name’5 Doddie Foundation we’ve decided to do something similar this year. 

This year we present “Big Club Dinner: DoddMaster”.

Based on TV’s “Taskmaster” we have chosen a group of rugby analysts, podcasters and fans to compete in a series of British & Irish Lions themed challenges. 

On Friday 25th June at 8:30pm their efforts will be judged by our “DoddMasters” live across our YouTube, Twitch, Facebook & Twitter channels

Each competitor will be representing a different Lion’s nation with one representing the Springboks. 

The competitors:

Springboks: Robbie Owen (Squidge Rugby)

Scotland: Jonny McGinty (Howe of Fife RFC)

Wales: Grav Prosser (Ruck n Roll Rugby Podcast)

Ireland: Sam Larner (Rugby Analyst)

England: Lee Calvert (Blood & Mud Rugby Podcast)

Judging the efforts of the competitors will be our team of DoddMasters.

The event is free to watch but in return we’re asking everyone to make a donation to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. You can do that by visiting our special Just Giving page

We’re also encouraging everyone to donate the price of a drink to their local rugby club. Local clubs across Britain and Ireland have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic unable to run usual fundraising activities and take money at the bar. 

Local clubs are the lifeblood of the game and every single player selected for the British & Irish Lions Tour will have fallen in love with the game at their local club.
