Gaucho will be hosting a series of thrilling screenings hosted by Hugo Southwell with a very special guest to give you insight into how the game unfolds. Catch every kick, try and scrum with a coffee and pastry welcome, drinks reception and four course meal. It really is a special way to watch for any rugby fan.
