London Wasps Legends on-Island this weekend

There are just a couple of days now until the Island is set for a real treat rugby-wise.

English rugby union side Wasps is sending its men's and women's legends sides over to take on Isle of Man select sides at the NSC on Saturday afternoon.

There'll be a carnival, family-oriented atmosphere too with fun events and attractions, stalls, food and drink and the like.

The players will also take part in coaching sessions, school appearances and a sold-out, fundraising, black tie dinner on Friday evening.

One of the organisers of the trip locally is John Bateson.

He told Ed Oldham how it came about: (play audio)

A limited number of tickets for the matches are left, costing £3 each. They can be bought at the entrance on the day, but in order to guarantee them in advance call John Bateson on 470550.
