The event that has captured the imagination of two towns will be fought once again on the 21st of September on the battlefields of Navan RFC when the club will take on local rivals Boyne RFC…

The day will kick off with a minis blitz at 10.30am, with the players of both clubs fighting for their club’s honour on the pitches of Balreask Old. At 3.30pm, the Colm Lynch Memorial Trophy will be played for by the U13 teams of both clubs and the Senior XVs will take to the pitch at 5pm in the Leinster Shield.

Navan RFC has taken the honours most recently, winning the Silver Sword of Victory trophy presented to the winners of the event last year. They have always been closely fought battles however, and Navan will have to be at their best to retain the trophy which hangs proudly in the clubhouse at Balreask Old.

Be sure to get there early to see the kids of these clubs facing off and to see if Boyne can bring the trophy back with them across the river. Families and friends from both towns are invited down for the day to add to the community spirit. There will be live music, food and plenty of rugby throughout the day, which is free for all attending.
