Former New Zealand All Blacks 7s great, Eric Rush, will be the Keynote Speaker. “Rushie” has entertained crowds at past Lost Afternoon Luncheons held in Chicago and Philadelphia but this will be the first time speaking at a US Rugby Foundation event west of the Mississippi.

“We are fortunate to have Rushie able and willing to speak at another of our Lost Afternoon Luncheons. His stories and jokes are legendary as we have heard at past Lost Afternoons. It’s going to be a fun afternoon and a great way to lead into what should be an exciting test match.”

Brian Vizard
US Rugby Foundation President
