Courage League Champs .v. Rest of the World

Further details are now available :

The match will be for the Sanyo Cup.

Sanyo are sponsoring the event to the tune of 250,000 pounds.
They are also providing a six figure budget for the organisers to
assemble the best players from all over the World.

Jonah Lomu has apparently been offered at least 5,000 pounds to play.

Francois Pienaar (SA), Joost van der Westhuizen (SA), Philippe Sella
(Fra), David Campese (Aus) and Gavin Hastings (Sco - Retired) are also
on the shopping list.

Leicester have spoken to 12 leading players from around the World, who
are very enthusiastic.  All players will be reimbursed for time and
effort they put into the game.

I understand that the game is on Sunday 21st April, despite several
sources reporting it as 20th April (I guess they think it should be
played on a Saturday)
