THREE of the late Bill McLaren’s “favourites” have been signed up for the third annual Voice of Rugby Dinner.

Former Scottish captain Andy Nicol will team up with fellow rugby legends Rob Wainwright and Phil Bennett at the showpiece fund-raiser at Edinburgh’s Prestonfield on Friday, March 8.

The event – which is being organised by the Bill McLaren Foundation and supported by Carbon Financial Partners Limited – will kick off what promises to be an action-packed rugby weekend in the capital with the Scottish team taking on Wales the following day at Murrayfield.

Linda Lawson, Bill’s daughter and foundation director, said: “We at the foundation are very much looking forward to our third Voice of Rugby Dinner which is proving as popular as ever.

“Events such as these are vital to our fund-raising efforts and we are hugely grateful for the continuing support of the rugby and business communities.

“We are especially delighted to welcome our speakers – Phil Bennett, Rob Wainwright and Andy Nichol – all of whom rated very highly in dad’s list of favourites. It will be a great night.”

Tables of ten are available at £1,000 or tables of 12 at £1,200.
