England World Cup winners reunite

Members of England's 2003 World Cup-winning squad will gather at Battersea Evolution on Friday night for the official 10-year celebration dinner.

A decade after captain Martin Johnson lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy, the majority of the players involved in English rugby's finest hour will be honoured at the gala event.

The dinner, hosted by Martin Bayfield, will see players and management recall their memories of the tournament.

Only five members of the squad - Jonny Wilkinson, Julian White, Joe Worsley and Mike Tindall - will be missing with all but White unavailable due to playing or coaching commitments.

The event has been organised by the Rugby Football Union and also includes an auction for the Injured Players Foundation and Restart charity.
