As someone who has been involved in International Sport, travelled the World extensively and also been fortunate to be the beneficiary of hospitality at Test Matches and all World Cups since 1991, I have to congratulate the RPA on exceptional quality of hospitality they put on in the first class facilities of the Players’ Lounge in the new South Stand at Twickenham.

KSS Chairman World Professional Surfers

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole atmosphere, the match and hospitality. I loved the Players’ Lounge, it really works well, and to have players participating in a Q&A an hour after the game is brilliant for the guests and a credit to your association.
Richard Bevan
CEO League Managers Association

The food, service, pre- and post-match speakers were all really excellent. The RPA and staff could not have been more accommodating. We have never had a bad experience at the Players’ Lounge and our clients always quickly snap up the invitations.

It was a brilliant day, thanks. I thought the staff were excellent and really added to the enjoyment of it all. Perfect setting and great seats. One of the best events I have been on. Thanks for all your hard work – it is very much appreciated.

Just a quick note to sat how much I enjoyed last night. The RPA should be justifiably proud of all the work they put into the evening. And you should be as pleased as punch. Well done. Much appreciated.

Just a short note to thank you all for your fantastic organisation on what was an excellent evening at the Awards Dinner

Apart from being thoroughly enjoyable, I thought the evening was extremely well prepared and well presented and certainly achieved your aim to set out and demonstrate all that is good in the game of rugby on and off the field.
Mark Haslam
Partner, BCL Burton Copeland

I would just like to thank you for inviting myself and the players along to the dinner last night. The girls really enjoyed it and gave them a much better insight into the work of the RPA which I think is of great benefit going forward. I thought the presentation to Andy Ripley was particularly moving and helped to demonstrate the full extent of your work to the players.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a great evening last night. It was the best yet! Our guests had a fantastic night and we’re all looking forward to it again next year…… getting the orders in now!
Louise Hewitt
Big Red Management

I just wanted to write a quick note saying thank you so much for last night. We had a lovely table (a season ticket holder for Sarries), and you did indeed sit us next to the table of some of our boys and I do appreciate it. What made the evening even more special was my lovely Schalk won the Players Player of the Year and I think I was ready to burst with pride, certainly my hands are a bit sore this morning from all the clapping.
