The game will be between a Prison Service squad and a 4-Loz squad, made up of his former playing colleagues from local clubs.

The ‘gentle giant’ known as Loz, died about 18 months ago when he collapsed after playing in a game for the Prison Service against Manchester Police.

The match will kick off at 6.30pm and there will be a pig-roast, and a raffle with some incredible prizes including exclusive prizes – many donated by professional rugby clubs and players.

All profits will go to Loz’s two charities, the Woodlands Trust and Heart Link.
