THE ITALIAN JOB III

A LONG LUNCH WITH

SCOTT QUINNELL, MICHAEL LYNAGH

& ANDY NICOL(MC)

 

SPONSORED BY CONDUIT FINANCE

 

Boroughmuir Community Sports Club and the Bill McLaren Foundation are proud to once again be coming together to host one of the most anticipated events in the rugby calendar during February 2019.

Hosted in the magnificent BT Murrayfield President's Suite the day before the Scotland v Italy Six Nations clash, this fantastic gathering will have something for everyone. The Italian Job III is a collaboration between Boroughmuir Community Sports Club and the Bill McLaren Foundation and has previously had great feedback in 2015 and 2017. The lunch event will celebrate Scottish and connections and the ‘fantastico’ game of rugby!

Hosted by former Scotland scrum-half Andy Nicol, 500 guests from all walks of life will have great fun and help add to the near £80,000 for charity that was raised in 2015 and 2017.

And those in attendance will get to hear from two amazing guest speakers who will be in attendance.

Scott Quinnell played over 50 times for Wales and turned out for the British & Irish Lions on their tours in 1997 and 2001. He also played for his country at rugby league.

Michael Lynagh was the vice-captain of the Australia team that won the World Cup in 1991 and, in all, the stand-off earned 72 caps for his country scoring over 900 points.

Both men now work for Sky Sports as pundits and have their fingers on the pulse of everything that is going on in the modern game.

Stevie Douglas, the Boroughmuir rugby president, said:  “We are delighted to work with the Bill McLaren Foundation again for this event.

“It is always great fun and the fact that lots of people have been asking me about it for the last few months so they can secure tickets shows just how popular it has become.”

Alan Lawson from the Bill McLaren Foundation added:  “This event has fast become one of the ‘must attend’ rugby functions around Six Nations time and we enjoy working with those at Boroughmuir to bring it together.

“The Italian Job III is shaping up nicely and I look forward to meeting rugby lovers from far and wide there.”

The Italian Job III is being sponsored by Edinburgh based Corporate Finance advisory firm, Conduit Finance. Jamie Davidson, the founder of the company, said:  “We are proud to once again support such a fantastic cause. To be associated with a charity and an event that helps engage people with the spirit of rugby is very satisfying.

“The growth of the event in recent years had been exciting to see. We are looking forward to what will be another lively event that will help the Bill McLaren Foundation increase engagement in our special sport.”
