Cork Constitution and Young Munster are set to serve up a pre-Christmas cracker at Temple Hill on Saturday (kick-off 2.30pm), battling it out for valuable Ulster Bank League points. With both sides currently in the top three in Division 1A, this has the makings of quite a clash.
With the festive season a matter of days away, Cork Constitution are starting their Christmas programme this Saturday to coincide with their heavyweight Division 1A encounter with Young Munster.
Going into match seven of the Ulster Bank League at Temple Hill, both clubs find themselves in a strong position at the top of the table and it promises to be another memorable occasion.
These two sides believe that a vibrant club structure underpins the professional game and is so vital in supporting the continued growth in the popularity of rugby in Ireland.
It is always a special day in the season when Young Munster come to Temple Hill and everyone in Constitution is looking forward to the visit of their provincial rivals and the current table toppers.
As has been the case with Ulster Bank League matchdays in Temple Hill, the club are putting an emphasis on bringing as much to the day as is possible.
This Saturday the club kicks off its Christmas activities with the pre-match Christmas lunch, always a great way to start the Christmas festivities.
For added entertainment there will be Christmas carol singing in the clubhouse before and after the game and the club is encouraging members and friends to come along and get into the festive spirit.
There will be an Under-10s/Under-11s and Under-12s club blitz prior to the Ulster Bank League match and all the Constitution players will form the now famous Temple Hill guard of honour welcoming both teams onto the pitch.
Also this weekend, Cork Con’s Under-13s welcome three teams from Terenure College to Temple Hill on Saturday with 70 of their coaches and parents.
The Terenure players will be hosted by Constitution on Saturday in advance of three matches on Sunday morning and the Con players look forward to replicating the hospitality received by their hosts in Dublin last weekend – a trip thoroughly enjoyed by all involved.
Following on from this weekend, Cork Con will gear up for more Christmas activities with two particular highlights – the Kids party and the club’s annual St. Stephen’s Day Crowley Cup fixture with UCC.
Santa is coming to the club on Saturday, December 17 to coincide with the Christmas break. A full programme has been organised for the Under-6s up to Under-13s and Peter Good, Cork Con’s director of underage rugby, is looking forward to ending the first half of the season on a Christmas high.
So, get into the festive season at Temple Hill this Saturday by watching some top level club rugby and enjoying what Cork Con can offer on league matchday!
