In the grand tradition of the Barbarians, the Ireland Club International team will wear their club socks for their historic clash with France at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 8pm) after the RBS 6 Nations game.
To mark the showcasing of the Ulster Bank League, the Ireland team will proudly wear their club socks as they take to the field for the Ulster Bank Club International.
Tickets for the game are available from ticketmaster.ie, while supporters who are at the RBS 6 Nations game are encouraged to stay on and enjoy this fantastic double header.
Speaking at the launch today, Ireland Club team captain Matt D’Arcy said: “I have been with Clontarf since I was seven and it will be a very proud moment to lead out the team in the green of Ireland and wear our club colours at the same time.”
As Community Rugby Partner & Sponsors of the Club International, Ulster Bank are encouraging Irish fans to support the Club International team this week.
