About Murderball Rugby 2014
The Murderball Rugby Tournament and The Murder Ball are two events organised by friends of Paul Barker a 34 year old South African rugby player who lost his leg due to a rugby accident followed by a rare form of cancer. The Murderball Tournament is a one day competition held at St Mary's University College in Twickenham and The Murder Ball is a fantastic Black Tie Dinner and Dance with guest speakers including England Captain Chris Robshaw. The money raised will go towards a new left leg for Paul Barker and will also fund the London and Leicester rugby wheelchair clubs. Next year the events will be owned and ran by the clubs as a way of generating steady income each year for their clubs to buy new chairs and pay for travel and insurance costs.
