The Ulster Branch leg of the Grand Slam Trophy Tour draws to a close this weekend. The two-week whistle stop tour has taken in clubs from Banbridge to Ballyshannon and many points in between.
This week the RBS 6 Nations trophy and Triple Crown visited Belfast Harlequins on Wednesday, while Thursday saw them being brought to Belfast City Council and Clogher Valley Rugby Club.
Today (Friday, August 28) will see them in Monaghan RFC for an underage presentation. The final stop on the tour is the club open day in Cavan RFC on Saturday.
Last weekend saw the trophies at Ballymena RFC where members young and old were delighted to get their picture taken with them.
One of those pictured was Ballymena’s most famous son, Dr. Syd Millar, who was delighted to have the trophies come to his home town club.
The tour will move to the province of Leinster next week, having already been in Connacht and Munster.
