Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
Rugby fans in Dublin will be able to kick their way to an RBS 6 Nations game. Ulster Bank, which is part of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, sponsors of the RBS 6 Nations Championship, will be kicking-off the Kick for an RBS 6 Nations Ticket' competition at the IFSC , today (Friday 21 January) at 11am.. The competition will tour the four Home Union capital cities, Belfast and Paris during January and February.
RBS has created a unique virtual rugby kicking environment using inflatable rugby kicking posts. All aspiring kickers are invited to come down and test out their skills. British & Irish Lions' legends, Keith Wood and Ieuan Evans will be at the IFSC on Friday encouraging fans to get involved. Members of the Ireland rugby squad will also be present to offer their support and advice during the day.
Competitors who manage to kick directly through the middle of the posts will have the chance to win a pair of tickets to Ireland home games and possibly a fantastic trip to Edinburgh to watch Scotland play Ireland on Saturday, February 12th.
Win or lose, no-one will leave Kick for an RBS 6 Nations Ticket' empty-handed. There will be RBS mini-rugby balls for everyone who takes part and all goal scorers will win an official RBS 6 Nations supporter's jersey.
