Grand Slam Trophy, Triple Crown, and a VIP Player Visits Old Wesley
Old Wesley played league leaders, Ballynahinch, last Saturday, and at the prematch lunch, Club President Paul Short was delighted to host the displaying of the Six Nations and Triple Crown trophies. To accompany this glittering array, the club was honoured to have Grand Slam winner, Andrew Porter, in attendance, along with his Dad, Ernie, and IRFU President, Philip Orr.
This was a very proud occasion for all in attendance,as Andrew played all his mini rugby in Old Wesley,following in the footsteps of his Dad, himself a former Leinster Senior Interprovincial and Leinster Cup Winner in 1985. To have the current IRFU President, himself an Old Wesley member, also in attendance, further embellished a very proud day for the club .
Most importantly for the spreading of the game, many kids, big and small, got their photographs taken with the trophies and celebrities, and visiting clubs on the day, Ballynahinch and Tallaght also availed of this unique opportunity. See photos below.
