“No Borders” competition


L 6  W 3



After a short break our “unriggable raffle” is back this week and we have Arena Sports Books to thank for our latest prize.

On offer this time is not one but TWO copies of the new book “No Borders - Playing Rugby for Ireland” edited by Tom English.  The winner of our raffle will pick up one copy while the everyone who has a go on Thursday between 9pm and midnight will be in with a shout for a second one.
Here’s some info on the book…
From Jack Kyle’s immortals to Brian O’Driscoll’s golden generation, this is the story of Irish rugby told in the players’ words
Celebrated rugby writer Tom English embarks on a pilgrimage through the four provinces to reveal the fascinating and illuminating story of
playing test rugby in the emerald green of Ireland – all the glory of victory, all the pain of defeat, and all the craic behind the scenes.
But this is more than just a nostalgic look back through the years, it is a searing portrait of the effects of politics and religion on Irish
sport, a story of great schisms and volatile divisions, but also as story of the profound unity, passionate friendships and the bonds of a
With exclusive new interview material with a host of Ireland rugby greats, Ireland’s Call unveils the compelling truth of what it means to play for Ireland at Lansdowne Road, Croke Park and around the world. This is the ultimate history of Irish rugby – told, definitively, by the men
who have been there and done it.

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 winning square for this competition is Leinster’s Rugby Champions’ Cup clash with Wasps on Sunday, November 15, 2015.
The following extra rules are unfortunate but necessary.

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

  • the competition winners will only be contacted via the social media account they used to qualify

  • 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 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
  • Note : unfortunately comments must be screened and may not appear immediately under posts.
