Belvo warm up with fundraiser
THEY may have their minds on their first ever AIL final on Sunday, but Old Belvedere will take time out from their preparations to host a fundraising match on Friday (7.0) for those affected by the recent disasters in New Zealand and Japan.
A Bernard Jackman-coached Ireland XV will take on a New Zealand selection coached by former All Blacks prop and current Leinster forwards coach Greg Feek and Blackrock College coach Andy Wood.
A number of high-profile faces are expected to contribute on and off the pitch and the game itself should be an entertaining one.
Tickets for the game will cost €10 for adults and €5 for children (U-13) and proceeds will go to the Irish Red Cross' New Zealand Earthquake and Japan Tsunami appeals to help those affected by the recent tragedies.
