ANNUAL RUGBY CLASSIC
Long regarded as one of the best sporting and social events in the international rugby calendar, the 30th Annual World Rugby Classic took place in Bermuda November. Showcasing many of the best rugby stars who have recently embraced retirement as well as some of the world’s leading businesses, the Bermuda Classic has grown from an Easter retreat for retired players in the 1970s into an international tournament of some repute.
Togging out in some distinctive Classic Lions garb in 2017 were David Corkery, Tomás O’Leary, Marcus Horan, Mike Ross and AIL stalwart David Moore. All were to the fore as the Classic Lions overcame the Classic Springboks in the Plate Final. In the main event however, the Classic Pumas won the title for the first time since 2011 when they saw off a Classic All Blacks side.Back to News
