Event Details

We would like to invite you all to a special evening event with Rory Underwood, former England and British Lions winger as we kick off and launch the not for profit Doha Rugby Business Network.

This evening event will be an up close and personal opportunity to meet with Rory who will be out in Qatar for a few days on business and also will be speaking at the DRFC Chairman's Dinner later in the week on Thursday 16th May. It is also a great opportunity to meet like minded people who want to help each other in life and in businesss.

Having first laced up his rugby boots as a youngster at Middlesbrough Rugby Club (with Rob Andrew and Bernie Coyne) Rory Underwood went on to become one of the greatest wings in rugby union. Underwood is the leading try scorer for England in international matches. He first played for England in February 1984 against Ireland at Twickenham. He won 85 England and 6 Lions capsbetween 1984 and 1996 (then an English record, later surpassed by Jason Leonard – it remains the highest total for an English back), scoring a record 49 tries for England, and 1 for the British Lions, making him one of the leading try scorers of all time. He played for England in the Rugby World Cups of 19871991 and 1995.

In 1992 he switched from the right to the left wing to accommodate his younger brother, Tony, in the team. They were the first brothers to represent England at the same time since 1937. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest wingers to ever play the game. Many of his tries are classics and he is renowned for the ability to run as fast with the ball in hand as without.

Rory now runs a consulting company called Wingman ( www.wingmanltd.com ) in the UK and will be here to talk about some of the principles he and his colleagues have learned from competing at top class international level in sport, as well as serving as an officer in the Royal Air Force.

The Doha Rugby Business Network is part of the international and not for profit Rugby Business Network with over 12,500 members and events in 40 cities across the world this gives the attendees in Doha a great oppportunity to connect to a wider international community of business people who are willing to help each other. The Doha event is a new initiative to bring the local business community closer to rugby and to set off joint opportunities for mutual benefit and growth. 

There will be structured but casual business networking opportunities for business people with a passion for rugby where the attendees simply ask each other 'How can I help you?' as opposed to what can you do for me.

We look forward to seeing you there.
