The Legends Already Confirmed For The Axel Memorial Game Are Ridiculous

This game is shaping up to be better than the main event.

An Irish Legends XV will face England in memory of Anthony Foley on the eve of Ireland’s Six Nations clash with England. The special exhibition game will take place on Paddy’s Day at the RDS on the eve of Ireland and England’s potential mammoth Six Nations decider at the Aviva.

This is the eight time the annual curtain raiser goes ahead with 2017 set to be the biggest in recent memory.
