Stew Mel Captains XV vs University of St Andrews Alumni XV

  • Richmond Athletic Association Twickenham Road Richmond, England, TW9 United Kingdom (map)

Five years since the tragic passing of University of St Andrews rugby captain Steven Sims aged just 23, friends and family reunite to launch a brand new charity in his name. 

The Steven Sims Cavaliers Foundation exists to tackle concussion in the grassroots rugby community across Scotland and seek to ensure boys and girls can continue to play this great sport safely.

To launch their campaign, the Cavaliers will host a dazzling display of champagne rugby in celebration of Steven’s life on Saturday 27 May in London. 

A select XV of Edinburgh’s Stewarts Melville School Alumni face the University of St Andrews Alumni XV at the home of London Scottish, the Richmond Athletic Ground. The crowd will then be joined by Lions top points scorer and Tour manager of 2013 Andy Irvine for a special Q&A hosted by the voices behind Scotland’s newest rugby podcast, the Thistle Rugby Podcast.
