Former All Blacks Josh Kronfeld, Jeff Wilson, Ian Jones and Eric Rush will be the stars of a Tauranga gala dinner to be held at ASB Arena.

The event, taking place on September 22, would include an entertaining panel discussion and the chance for questions from the audience. The evening will not only offer top-class entertainment but also gourmet meals and fine beer and wine.

Wilson would lead the team with interview-style discussion designed to provoke interesting insights and stories of the lives and careers of the sportsmen. Lots of action and banter could be expected, Heath Ingham of Events Innovated said.

"It will be a hugely entertaining night. "Eric is a sevens legend and known for his incredible humour so I'm sure he will spark a lot of great stories. Josh, Jeff and Ian are iconic All Blacks with more than 190 caps between them, and are now all doing really well as pundits on TV. So it's a great opportunity to witness these guys up close and personal and enjoy a five-star event here in the Bay."
