TV presenter Grainne Seoige looked only too happy to join her rugby coach boyfriend on the turf of his club grounds for a charity fundraiser.

The television star wore a pink scarf as she joined former-rugby-player-turned-coach, Leon Jordaan, as players turned out at an Action Breast Cancer event in aid of the Irish Cancer Society at his club in Navan, Co Meath.

Our picture by Mark Pearce shows the couple enjoying each other's company during the event over the weekend.

Ms Seoige (38), who is due to host the Feis Ceoil Grand Finale this Saturday in the National Concert Hall, began dating the South African coach this year.

In 2010 Ms Seoige announced the break-up of her eight-year marriage to TV3's former sports editor and television producer Stephen Cullinane.

The broadcaster recently spoke about her joy after her sister Sile, a Newstalk presenter, had recovered after six months of treatment for thyroid cancer.

Navan RFC was attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most unbroken consecutive passes of a rugby ball to a different person. It did not accomplish this feat but did equal the number of passes.

The club has raised more than €50,000 for the charity through 'Pink Days' over the past five years.
