Quizmaster Matt Dawson – a former team captain of BBC's Question of Sport and himself a Northampton Saints, England and British Lions legend – will be guiding the teams through all the usual Question of Sport rounds, including the famous ‘what happened next’ videos, as well as trying to keep control of the inevitable banter.

A true one-club player, Keogh has been a staple in Northamptonshire sides since his debut in 2010 and he's delighted to be bringing some great events to local sports fans during his testimonial year.
