Attention all 35+ rugby players and former rugby players. Relive the glory days by joining Munster Golden Oldies. Finally, get your chance to play for Munster! Applications now being taken.
MUNSTER GOLDEN OLDIES RUGBY is becoming increasingly popular and is available for the over 35 s who wish to play and enjoy the game they have loved for years … and in many cases, years and years!! This offers supporters a unique opportunity to become a member of the Golden Oldies squad to play for Munster.
You do not have to be a former Munster player however you must have played rugby within the last few years and be a member of a MBIRFU rugby club. Generally, the normal laws or rules of the game apply, with some minor alterations such as unlimited substitution, shorter playing times (three 20 minute periods) and at all times, the emphasis is on fun! This team will be affiliated to MBIRFU with all the necessary player insurance. There will be a competition to name the team so please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will receive a signed Munster Legend Moss Keane’s new book to be published in October.
