Thursday 23rd May

We are very pleased to announce that the Selby RUFC Sporting Dinner will be held on Thursday 23rd May 2024 in the Marquee on the Pitch.

Our speakers will be former England, Bath & Saracens Prop, turned TV Pundit David "Flats" Flatman and experienced rugby broadcaster and a live event host, Alex Payne.

Former rugby star turned media personality, David is one of the great voices of sport, appearing on all major channels with his insightful punditry. Gaining eight caps for the England national team throughout his career, Flatman was a first-choice prop for the side, known for dedication and drive on the pitch. Making his debut for England in 2000, within one season he quickly became a regular in the A team, competing in matches in France, San Fransisco and South Africa. Dedicating his club career to both Saracens and Bath, Flatman made a combined 265 appearances of the course of 14 years.

Alex Payne, over the course of his career, has covered three Lions tours, fronted England beating the All Blacks at Twickenham and anchored the Aviva Premiership. He has also anchored Guinness Pro 12, European Cup and Super Rugby finals. More recently Alex is known for his podcast (The Good, The Bad and The Rugby) that he co hosts with James Haskell and Mike Tindall.
