Aldi Begin Search For Child Rugby Pundits

Calling all budding child rugby pundits! Aldi has teamed up with official RBS 6 Nations broadcaster RTE to find the best child rugby pundits in the country.

As a business rooted in communities across the country for over 17 years, we’re committed to helping more young people throughout Ireland gain access to rugby in their local school.

“In September 2016 we launched the Aldi Play Rugby initiative, bringing the non-contact rugby programme to schools all over the country, and with the Aldi Kids Rugby Panel we’re hoping to add something extra special to the RBS 6 Nations that all the family can get involved in.”
