The week in pictures

Tartan was the name of the game at the 2018 Auld Enemy dinner at the Balmoral sponsored by Pol Roger, which raises money for various rugby charities.

Taking its name from the fact that England and Scotland are longtime rivals, this year’s dinner raised money for the Doddie Weir Foundation, aimed at finding a cure for motor neurone disease. Doddie Weir (third from right in red tartan) is a former Scottish international lock and British and Irish Lion player who now raises funds for those living with the condition.

The reception always precedes the oldest international rugby fixture in the world, The Calcutta Cup.
