Byrne to lead veterans against auld enemy

CREAKING BONES and cracking stories will be unearthed at Harlequins' Stoop on March 16 when the English and Irish legends engage in the annual clash of the dinosaurs.

Inoapps have clambered aboard as associate shirt sponsor, joining team sponsor Validus Re for the game in aid of the IRFU Charitable Trust in Ireland and the RFU Injured Players Foundation and RPA Benevolent Fund in England.

Platinum-selling X-Factor star Andy Abraham will be performing to the crowds before the game.

Ireland will be hoping to reclaim the Stuart Mangan Memorial Cup with Shane Byrne leading a team including Mick Galwey, Eric Miller, Malcolm O'Kelly, Nick Popplewell, Justin Bishop, Kieron Dawson and Anthony Foley.

Following a key performance in 2010, Jason Robinson returns to the team alongside captain Martin Corry, Jason Leonard, Austin Healey, Mark Regan, Richard Cockerill, Andy Gomersall and Tim Stimpson.

Tickets start at £10, concessions £5, and are now on sale from www.englandireland or

You will also be able to pay at the gate for what promises to be another fun-fuelled memorable evening at The Stoop.
