Munster Rugby will wear a variety of local school & club colours when they meet the Maori All Blacks this November.
To celebrate the launch of the new 2016/17 alternate kit, Munster Rugby, adidas and exclusive retail partner Life Style Sports have launched the #MunsterRising socks initiative, which will see the squad tog out in socks that will represent a selection of local school and club colours for their epic showdown against Maori All Blacks in Thomond Park on November 11th.
We caught up with Munster Rugby star Simon Zebo to find out about his memories of his days in Cork Con and to ask him how important club rugby is for the future of Munster Rugby.
The club game was massive to my career. Just making the step from schools rugby or from AIL Senior to Pro 12 rugby is a jump…but it shortens the gap.
Munster fans are invited to visit www.lifestylesports.com/munsterrising to nominate their school or club to be in with a chance to be represented on the pitch by the squad on Friday, November 11 when Munster welcome the Maori All Blacks to Thomond Park. The schools or clubs selected will be paired up with players on the pitch and see their colours worn by the Munster team. Schools and clubs from around the province will have their colours represented across the squad with specially commissioned adidas socks made for the historic encounter.
Along with seeing their club or school colours on the big stage, winning entrants will also enjoy the full match-day experience with match-tickets, a stadium tour and the opportunity to lay socks out for the players in the Munster dressing room before kick-off.
The 2016/17 alternate jersey, training range and supporters clothing is available only at Life Style Sports now. To enter this competition and for further details, visit www.lifestylesports.com/munsterrising.
