Rugby World Cup final referee Nigel Owens will be the special guest at Wymondham Rugby Football Club's annual dinner.

More than 600 people are expected to be at the club's annual fundraising event on May 17, which has become the biggest sporting dinner in the east of England. Andrew Kilby, club chairman, said he was delighted Mr Owens would be there.

Mr Kilby said: 'We've had some great speakers in the past and had got Nigel booked last year but he then had to take charge of the Champions Cup final so couldn't come. But he said he'd make good this year and he has'.

Mr Owens, 45, has been refereeing since 1987. He is also a TV personality in his native Wales.

Roger Dakin will be master of ceremonies for the dinner, at the club in Tuttles Lane.
