Legends let loose at Donnybrook

Some of the biggest names in modern rugby history will be on show when Ireland hosts the Legends match against England, at Donnybrook, on Friday March 18th (kick-off 7.30pm) the night before the two countries meet in the Six Nations at the Aviva Stadium.

The money raised from the match will be donated to the IRFU Charitable Trust in Ireland and to improving the lives of inner city youths through Sport and Education in England in what is expected to be a highly competitive clash between the two rugby nations.

The game is being sponsored by Reinsurance group Validus Re and is being played for the Stuart Mangan Memorial Cup, currently held by the Irish Legends, who were the narrow victors by 17-15 in 2010.

Ireland's team will be led by Ireland and British & Irish Lion Shane Byrne. His team will include such Irish legends as Nick Popplewell, Rob Henderson, Mick Galway, Mal O'Kelly, Eric Miller and Girvan Dempsey.

England's team will be led by former captain and British & Irish Lion Martin Corry. Martin is joined by several members of the England 2003 World Cup winning team including Jason Leonard, Josh Lewsey, Austin Healy, Kyran Bracken and Dan Luger.
