WORCESTER Warriors centurion Jonny Arr will be amongst a core fleet of retired rugby players completing a 750-mile cycle challenge this Saturday.

Arr will arrive at the Gallagher Premiership Final between Leicester Tigers and Saracens with a group of former pros, including Nathan Hines, Charlie Sharples and Jack Clifford at Twickenham Stadium following their 'Road to Twickenham' charity challenge.

It began in Newcastle and the group have stopped off at 11 of the 13 Premiership clubs on their trip down to London to raise awareness and support for local Gallagher Premiership Rugby Foundations.

The team have been also been raising money for 'Wooden Spoon', a rugby charity that funds life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland that support vulnerable children and young people.

If you wish to donate, then you can do right here or you can text WOODENSPOON 10 to 70085 to donate £10. 

Arr is one of the riders who will have travelled the full 750-miles and despite the mammoth task, he admitted it was something he could not pass up.

"I have been involved in a few things they (Wooden Spoon) have done over the years so when I heard they were involved in this challenge, I jumped at the chance," he said.

"It's a charity that has been going for a long time. It has massive links to rugby, it's there to fund projects across the country to make a difference to young children and vulnerable children.

"And also a lot of work goes in around the Worcestershire area. I know a lot of people involved around there and hopefully some of the money will be put to a good use in the Worcestershire area.

"But on a personal level, it's a once in a lifetime thing to do and a good challenge for me personally as well."

By Friday afternoon, the bulk of the ride will have been completed and will leave just the home stretch to deliver the Premiership trophy to Twickenham Stadium.

Speaking to the Worcester News on Thursday, Warriors legend Arr said it had been an experience to remember with a group of boys who have spurred each other on the whole way.

"It's been great to join the boys," he added.

"We all have one thing in common; all retired rugby players, and it's great to get some banter back, a bit of a team building and competition as well.

"So it's been a really good experience.

"We will do the hard riding on Friday so then on Saturday, we can cruise in and finish it up before really enjoying the day with a few beers to celebrate and watching a good game of rugby."
