Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
This year's shorts are made from with a slightly heavier fabric than the 2007 versions but still remain light enough and durable enough for a summer sport such as Tag Rugby.
Pre-purchasing online well before the season starts yields various advantages to the buyer. Firstly, buying online in plenty of time guarantees your shorts for you, beating the rush at the beginning of the season.
Since they are only available for collection at the venue on the League (or Festival) nights, all you will have to do is roll up, state your name and order number and your local friendly venue manager will hand them over to you.
Secondly, buying online also has its fiscal advantages. Instead of paying EUR20.00 per pair at the venue itself (and not even guaranteeing your size will be in stock at the venue), you only pay EUR17.50 per pair.
Please note that these shorts are only available online on IrfuTag.ie and nowhere else.
