Rugby backers taste the action

Wasps stars cook up special treat for sponsor programme members

A group of the region’s leading businesspeople were in for a treat when they tackled a barbecue hosted by rugby stars at Wasps’ training ground at Broadstreet Rugby Club. Members of Wasps Player Sponsorship Programme met the likes of Joe Launchbury, Joe Simpson and Marcus Watson before being taken on a behind-the-scenes tour and watching the Wasps squad in action. Businesses represented featured national names such as Mark Allen Exhibitions and Gaucho Restaurants, as well as local companies like Coventry-based CAD CAM Automotive and Birmingham’s Tinker Taylor.
