“Throughout my career I always played for the name on the front of the jersey not on the back and gave 100 per cent every time I took the field. As a player I let my rugby do the talking – although a few choice words to an opponent never went amiss.”
The Clubhouse will play host to an excellent evening of entertainment on the 13th September with World Cup and Lions Series Winner Mark 'Ronnie' Regan MBE hosting a dinner.
For those that don't know, Mark is a true character of the game. Playing as a hooker, Mark’s hard working and tenacious style allowed him in 1995 to be the first player to make an England debut against South Africa in the age of professional rugby. Just eight years later, Mark won the World Cup and was a finalist again in 2007. Mark retired from international rugby after victory over France in Paris, 2008.
His career had earned him 46 international caps for England. At club level, whilst with Bath between 1997 and 2002; he played 93 competitive matches and won the prestigious Heineken Cup in 1997. After leaving Bath Mark enjoyed a stint at the Leeds, where he helped to beat his old club in the Powergen Cup final. Mike finally moved to Bristol to play out the rest of his career, but not before he assisted the team’s effort to finish third in the Premiership.
A World Cup winner, Grand Slam winner, Triple Crown winner, Lions series winner, European Cup winner, Mark’s credentials speak for themselves.
The evening will comprise of a two-course dinner to be followed by cheese and biscuits and the opportunity to listen to many of Mark's Tales from the Front Row.
