Leicester Tigers legends and World Cup winners Martin Corry, Martin Johnson and Lewis Moody will be joining guests in March for the club's 125 Year Dinner.

All three played a crucial part in England’s world cup triumph in Australia back in 2003 and between them they racked up more than 860 appearances in a Tigers shirt.

Corry made his Tigers debut in 1997 and quickly became a regular as a mobile, ball handling No8. Part of Tigers dominant 1999-2002 Premiership and Heineken Cup winning sides, Corry was capped 62 times for England, earning an MBE from his World Cup success and was part of the 2001 and 2005 British & Irish Lions teams.

“Johnno” is one of rugby’s most decorated and recognisable players. Leicester, England and British & Irish Lions captain, the towering lock’s presence on the pitch was like no other. First stepping out for Tigers in 1989, Johnson made more than 360 appearances in the red, white and green jersey.

Leading England to World Cup success in 2003, Johnson was awarded a CBE and went on to win the Six Nations as England head coach in 2011. 

Moody MBE played on the edge in all of his 223 appearance for Tigers between 1996 and 2010. The flanker's earned 71 caps for England and was part of the 2005 British & Irish Lions squad. 

The dinner is sponsored by vehicle management specialists Total Motion and takes place on March 6. Guests will enjoy a three-course meal before interviews with Tigers legends – including the likes of Peter Wheeler, Neil Back and Graham Rowntree – and a special auction to raise money for the Doddie Weir Trust. 

Places are still available at £115 plus VAT per person or a table of 10 with a current Tigers player can be reserved for £1,500 plus VAT.
