Two lucky Tag Rugby draw winners were at Croke Park last Saturday to shout Ireland on against England in a very tight encounter indeed.
Laurie Burke and Jean Webster, who play their Tag in Waterpark RFC for The Torps team, started the day with a quick photo or two taken in the stands well before the crowds arrived for the Ireland v England game.
And so they made their way to the official IRFU pre-match Lunch in one of the stadium’s function rooms to spend an enjoyable afternoon sharing a table with some of the players’ wives and girlfriends.
Onwards to their seats they went after the pre-match function and joined in with the 80,000-plus crowd shouting on Ireland in a hard-earned win which preserved their 100% record in this year’s Championship.
Laurie said: “What a great day out! The pre-match meal was very enjoyable, with everyone there in great spirits, all gearing up for the game to commence!
“Our seats for the game were fantastic and to be that close to the pitch was an amazing experience. Many thanks for such a memorable day!”
Tag players can also be drawn to win a prize involving Ireland’s game away against Wales in Cardiff on March 21. For details on how to enter, see article HERE.
