Did you manage to identify our mystery player? Or did your name come up trumps in our Monthly Canterbury Kit Competition?
And the Oscar goes to………

Guess Who?

Our Mystery Man caused a few of you some problems, though the hair colour should have narrowed it down a bit.

For those of you who said it was Mark Tainton (the guy in the background) – full marks for knowing his face but no prize.

The most popular choice with 30% of you was Ronan O’Gara but he is not our mystery man.

23% of you thought it was Jerry Flannery and 20% went for Andrew Trimble and Brian O’Driscoll. Whoever thought it was Paul O’Connell really needs to take a good hard look at some pictures!!!

The 20% of you who went with Ireland Captain Brian O’Driscoll are vidicated as he is the mystery man. In the immortal words of a certain film, however, “there can be only one”.

The winner of our guess who competition is Cliona Kennedy who lives in England. Well done Cliona – a goody bag of IRFU merchandise is on the way.

Canterbury Kit Competition

Canterbury Logo Our Monthly Kit Competition was back in February, after a brief absence in January.

The prizes up for grabs were:

1st: Canterbury Ireland Home Jersey
2nd: Canterbury Ireland Striped Polo
3rd: Canterbury Ireland Cap

The question was:

Who was the Ireland Captain when they beat England 17 – 0 in Lansdowne Road in 1987?

We gave you three choices: Willie Anderson, Philip Matthews and Donal Lenihan. The correct answer was Philip Matthews.

The winners are:

1st Prize – Monica Conway
2nd Prize – Eamonn Waldron
3rd Prize – Niall Corrigan
