The Rugby Centurions dinner at the Hilton London Metropole was the most spectacular, most memorable evening in “Rugby History“. It was a huge honour to be commissioned to create the trophy.
"The Rugby Centurions dinner at the Hilton London Metropole was a star-studded, glittering affair last night as rugby's elite, those who have received 100 or more caps playing for their country gathered for this special dinner. The men and women honoured came from New Zealand, England, South Africa, Scotland, Georgia, France, Italy, Wales, Australia, Romania, Portugal and Ireland. HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco was in attendance to pay tribute to the honourees and started the official blazer ceremony by handing French legend Phillippe Sella his, who then handed Jason Leonard his. As each legend came onto the stage, they were handed their blazer by a fellow Centurion.
Renowned sculptor Jill Berelowitz was commissioned to create a piece of artwork that epitomises the spirit of the Rugby Centurions and will stand as a memorial plaque with all the players names, which will get added to as other players achieve this milestone. We are especially proud of our South African legends who attended the function and received their blazers, John Smit, Bryan Habana, Victor Matfield and Jean De Villiers." SA Rugby Legends Association
