British & Irish Lions legends Martyn Williams and Steve Thompson MBE are just two on a long list of rugby legends to be making guest appearances at HIRO House this autumn.
Running for the duration of the Rugby World Cup 2015, HIRO House is a pop-up private members club situated at Glaziers Hall on London’s thriving South Bank. It will provide an exclusive location for businessmen and women to network while watching all 48 games of the prestigious competition in the company of sporting legends.
Martyn & Steve join some of sport’s biggest names at HIRO House including England World Cup winner Ian Balshaw MBE, former Australian scrum-half Nick Farr-Jones & Fiji fly-half Nikki Little.
Having achieved 100 caps as a forward for Wales, former rugby union player Martyn Williams holds the Welsh record for most appearances in the Five and Six Nations championships as well as having played for the British and Irish Lions.
Steve Thompson developed his rugby education in England and abroad; the Hemel Hempstead-born no 2 played for Northampton Saints before joining Brive in 2007. After three years at the Limousin club, the front-row forward went to Leeds Carnegie before seeing out his career at London Wasps in 2011.
Between 2002-2011, Steve won 73 international caps, and was part of England’s victorious Rugby World Cup campaign in 2003. Two years later came appearances for the British & Irish Lions on the tour to New Zealand
Hiro founder and former Wales international Andy Moore says that HIRO house will offer members the opportunity to "experience the first ever sporting private members club in the heart of London", adding that "it will offer a unique place for like minded people to mix business with pleasure and rub shoulders with the great and the good".
Two true legends of rugby, Martyn and Steve will be eager to share their inspiring stories at HIRO House this September and October. For more information click here.
