Irish chocolate company Broderick's is taking their bright green van 'Cake Force One' over to the site of Ireland's Rugby World Cup clash against France this weekend.

The vehicle is heading for the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to make sure Irish fans are well stocked up on chocolate 'soakage'.

The company will be interviewing rugby fans on the street and will pay participants in chocolate.

"We are sports mad in the bakery," founder Bernard Broderick said.

"We felt that the fans needed that extra bit of fuel to keep the chants going in Millennium Stadium to help encourage the team. We have stocked the van and are looking forward to the overall tour especially both weekends in Cardiff."

"What a brilliant excuse to feck off to the UK and get in some Rugby at the same time," he added.

The dynamic duo, who say their favourite players are "coincidentally" the Kearney brothers, will be touring the UK in between games delivering 'pamper boxes' to lucky the grandmothers of their Facebook fans.

If you wish to submit your granny to win a 'pamper box', head to the Broderick's Facebook page to nominate them for a visit from Cake Force One.

The brothers are asking fans to Tweet or Instagram your #‎brodericksselfie‬ with your free treats.
