Calling all on all supporters to please bring any spare rugby gear (socks, togs, jerseys, boots) to Saturday’s game in Thomond Park. Munster Rugby will have collection points in place at the stadium so supporters can deposit any spare gear.

All collected items will be used for developing rugby among children and teenagers by providing them with the basic requirements to take up the sport.

Two specific regions in Munster will be the initial beneficiaries of this scheme, the Limerick regeneration areas and the Knocknaheeny/Hollyhill area on the north side of Cork. So please show your support and give up your gear this Saturday!

Other collections will take place at the following games:
Sunday 10th January – Munster v Scarlets – Musgrave Park
