Best brothers to go head to head in quiz

ON Saturday July 30, Banbridge RFC will host an exciting night of sporting entertainment featuring local sports stars from rugby, boxing, GAA, cricket and golf in a venture to raise funds for both Banbridge RFC and the IRFU Charitable Trust.

This autumn, Banbridge RFC member and past player Garry Best will take part in the IRFU Charitable Trust’s World Cup Cycle when 30 cyclists from Ireland will cycle 1000 miles of New Zealand’s South Island in 10 days.

And Garry has called upon his nephews Simon and Rory Best to help support the fundraising effort for both Banbridge and the Charitable Trust.

Brothers Simon and Rory will go head to head against each other when they captain their respective teams in ‘A Question of Sport.’

The quiz will be hosted by Sky Sports pundit and former Banbridge player Tyrone Howe, and the two teams will feature former Commonwealth heavyweight champion boxer Marty Rogan, Down Gaelic football star Marty Clarke, former Irish cricket captain Kyle McCallan and professional golfer Richard Kilpatrick.

The night will also include comedy from Irish rugby legend Mick Quinn and music from Fiddler Adam, while a hog roast dinner is included in the price of the ticket.

Tickets cost £20 and will be available to buy online or from Banbridge club committee members from next Monday (June 20).

The night offers a great opportunity to support both the fantastic work of the IRFU Charitable Trust as well as help raise vital funds for Banbridge RFC for the forthcoming season.
