Ireland & England Set To Battle It Out In Special Twickenham Fixture

Back for revenge.

Ireland and England will battle it out in a very special match once again this year, as the Canterbury #RugbyFit series enters its second season.

Two amateur rugby teams will go head-to-head in a special fixture at world famous rugby ground Twickenham, after they’ve been put through their paces with 5 weeks of specially designed training to get them #RugbyFit.

Flying the flag for Ireland will be Team RugbyLAD, featuring players from newly-found Munster Rugby club Ardscoil Old Boys RFC. On the other side will be Team RugbyDump representing England.

Ireland, Leinster and Lions centre Robbie Henshaw has been brought in as Ireland’s Head Coach, while former England, Northampton and Lions prop Alex Corbisiero will take charge of the English team.

Each training week will also see a special coach come in to offer their expertise.
