Rugby Warrior competition

RW COMP TAKE 2

CLICK THE GRID FOR A BETTER LOOK

AFTER PRIZE WENT UNCLAIMED A DRAW WAS HELD AND THE EVENTUAL WINNER WAS :

AMY BENNETT


Here’s a tip…if you enter a competition, maybe check back and see if you won?

For the second time in a row our winner has failed to get in touch (remember…rules stipulate it can only be via the Facebook account used to qualify) so that means good news for those who entered in that the prize is to go back on offer.

The winner’s square on the grid has been awarded to the entrant who just missed the cut on the day they entered, and the new winner will now be decided using the above “Take 2” grid and the result of today’s Italy v Scotland Six Nations match will determine the winning square.

Should that winner fail to claim their prize before 9am Monday morning, other matches from the weekend will be used to find a winner…one way or another, the prize will be allocated by midday Monday.

Best of luck to everyone again!


This week we are grateful to Gerard Siggins and O’Brien Press for offering a copy of his new book “Rugby Warrior” as a prize for our latest competition!

It’s a sequel to his 2012 offering “Rugby Spirit” and is available to the public from February 17.


A great new rugby read from Ireland’s leading children’s publisher.

It’s a new school term and Eoin Madden has new responsibilities. He’s now captain of the Under 14s team and has to deal with friction between his friend Rory and new boy Dylan as they thrash it out for a place as scrum-half.

And away from the pitch Eoin has his hands full too. He starts work on a project about Irish-born All Black Dave Gallaher who died in World War I, but an old book brings Eoin a lot closer to the rugby legend than he ever thought possible …

Fast-paced action, mysterious spooks and feuding friends – it’s going to be a season to remember!

Full of action and mystery, with great match descriptions, young sports fans, and especially rugby fans, will love Rugby Warrior.

Author Gerard Siggins was born in Dublin in 1962 and has lived almost all his life in the shadow of Lansdowne Road; he’s been attending rugby matches there since he was small enough for his dad to lift him over the turnstiles. He is a journalist and worked for the Sunday Tribune for many years. His first book for children, Rugby Spirit, was published in 2012.


As always, to qualify for the competition you will have to stay tuned to the HarpinOnRugby Facebook page throughout the coming week and follow the instructions when the posts are published.  Below you will see a grid showing the days, times and number of qualifiers for each post.

The rugby match which will provide the winner for this competition is Leinster’s Pro12 clash with the Newport-Gwent Dragons on Friday, February 14, 2014

The following extra rules are unfortunate but necessary.


  • the winner must provide an address on the island of Ireland

  • the competition winner will only be contacted via the social media account they used to qualify and they MUST respond within 48 hours of the final whistle in the rugby match otherwise the prize could be put back on offer to other entrants in a manner to be determined by the organisers

  • only one entry per separate Facebook account is allowed each day, but it’s ok to enter once on each of the four days

  • each window closes 3 hours after posting – if all of the spots are not all taken, the extra ones will be allocated in a manner to be determined by the competition organisers.

  • when you are asked to leave an “exact phrase” this means you can use the phrase with OR without the quotes; also, since speed is a factor in the competition we will make allowances for typos once it is clear a decent attempt has been made to repeat the phrase

  • for some windows “edited” Facebook comments will not be permitted as entries…this will be outlined as part of the post where it applies

  • for transparency purposes your qualifying comment must remain on the social media post until at least two hours of completion of the rugby match that is to determine the competition winner.

  • be aware that Facebook have been known to display comments in a random order on the web; as competition organisers we will do all we can to ensure the timeline is properly followed in each window.

  • entrants’ positions on the grid are set and not open for discussion, nor are any other final decisions made by the competition organisers.


    If you have any questions about the competition and/or its format or indeed would like to sponsor one down the line, feel free to email we'd be happy to help.

    BE SURE AND HAVE A GO AND BEST OF LUCK!!! JLP
