Win Murrayfield's posts
Scottish Rugby is offering clubs throughout the country the chance to preserve a piece of the game’s history.
This Thursday (23 May) will be the end of an era at Murrayfield as the steel rugby posts on the international pitch are dismantled for the last time. It’s understood the posts have been in place for more than 30 years so were there when Scotland won the Grand Slams in 1984 and 1990 and the last ever Five Nations Championship in 1999.
To mark this special occasion, Scottish Rugby is inviting the public into Murrayfield to have the chance to kick a goal through these historic posts for the last time and, if they wish, make a donation to one of Scottish Rugby’s family of charities – Murrayfield Centenary Fund, Bill McLaren Foundation, Hearts & Balls and Princess Royal Trust for Carers - at the same time .
The public will be able to come in to kick their goals from 12noon-2pm and 4-7pm. Men who featured on that pitch on many an occasion, Chris Paterson and Duncan Hodge, will be on hand to offer advice.
When the posts are dismantled, all clubs in Scotland are being invited to enter a competition to have the chance to win the posts for their own club and Chris and the Scottish Rugby ground-staff will travel to that club in the new season to deliver them in style.
A club could win the posts
Clubs simply have to tell us in 50 words or less why they should be the new home for the famous posts. Chris will chair a panel of three players who graced the Murrayfield turf and will choose the winning entry.
We’ll tell you in next week’s club communication the address to which your entries should be sent and the closing date for your entries.
So, get your thinking caps on to be in with the chance to help the legend live on!
