However, he won’t be taking the train.

Instead, he will be walking the 32 miles ahead of the match, in aid of Doddie Weir’s MND foundation, hopefully arriving before kick-off.

He said: “Doddie is one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities.

"His story has touched the rugby world. And to have done it with a smile never far from his lips, and humour punctuating every call to action, Doddie does inspire.”

Jason has so far raised £3,705 of his £1,600 target.
