RuckinRugby are proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the Rugby For Heroes Select England Legends team at the upcoming ‘Charity Sporting Prints Rugby Legends International Vets 10s‘ Tournament.
The event brings together two things that are very important to me: Vets Rugby and supporting the British Armed Forces, so I am really proud to have my company involved.
IMPORTANT: We are still looking for a chest sponsor for the shirt, so please get in touch if you’re interested or know someone who might be.
The Tournament is to be held at Helensburgh Rugby Club on May 31st and promises to be a real festival of rugby. Here’s a short intro to it all by my friend and organiser, David Higgins:
It was my goal 18 months ago to bring Veteran tens rugby to the West of Scotland during the summer months, to bring back many over 35s rugby players back to the game, maybe have a few 15 aside over 40s games in the process, and for us all to enjoy the camaraderie and the experience of playing in rugby games where the game maybe slightly slower than the younger teams but the quality of the play is the same if not better. If you think you’re too old – you won’t be – I am 54!
This event is a celebration of Veteran rugby and all it stands for. The fantastic event gives players the chance to meet and play against some of the biggest names in World Rugby. It may seem a daunting task for most players but I promise you the experience will be one you will remember for the rest of your life, and will always remain one of your favourite rugby memories for years to come. This is a once in a life time opportunity for regular club players to achieve that secret ambition. The only place you would experience this type of event would be at the Dubai International Vets Tens, and using our experience we have brought to you the same experience on your own door step.
Each team or player will be in a group of four teams which will include one of the international vet teams. The other three teams are full of players like you and remember there are three trophies to be won here, so set your target on winning the Plate or the Social trophy of the Bowl. Do not miss out. be it a full team of 15 players from one club, or a amalgamation between two or three clubs or even a single player we can at the moment fit you all in, but don’t delay.

There are 4 main ‘Legends’ Teams and RuckinRugby are sponsoring the ‘England’ Legends, that will be fielding Duncan Bell, Andy Gomarsall, Sean Long and many others.
I really hope to get up there myself … and maybe even pull me boots on! 😉[green_button href=”http://kitsportswear.tictail.com/product/pro-rugby-for-heroes-legends-adult-replica”]Buy a Shirt[/green_button]
