NEWS: Pit Your Wits Against Rugby Legends

England legends and ENS clients, Martin Bayfield and Pete Richards, will be playing SportGuru for the RBS Six Nations, and you can take them on in your pool!

For this year’s RBS Six Nations Championship, SportGuru have introduced a functionality that will enable members of the public to add Martin and Pete to their pool and pit their wits against two rugby legends.

Martin, who at 6ft 10’ is the country’s tallest ever representative, gained 31 England caps and 3 British and Irish Lions caps before being forced to retire due to a back injury. Since retirement Martin has become a prominent figure on the after dinner speaking circuit and an established broadcaster. As well as anchoring ITV’s rugby coverage, Martin also plays the role of Hagrid’s body double in the Harry Potter series.

Former London Irish and England player, Pete Richards was forced to retire at the end of the 2009/10 season due to a back injury. Pete started his professional career at London Irish before playing for Harlequins, Benetton Treviso, Bristol Shoguns, Wasps and Gloucester and then returned to London Irish at the start of the 2007 season. Pete played his part in England’s memorable 2007 Rugby World Cup campaign and was part of the winning England team at the Hong Kong Sevens in 2004.
