Some of the biggest legends of rugby will descend on the RDS on St. Patrick’s Day to remember Anthony Foley.

The likes of Ronan O’ Gara, Paul O’Connell, Gordon D’Arcy, Mark Cueto and Mike Tindall will take part in the eighth annual Ireland Legends V England Legends game, which is the curtain raiser to the main Six Nations match taking place on Saturday, March 18th.

Following the passing of Anthony Foley in October, many of his former teammates and opponents have sought to pay tribute to one of the great servants of their game.

Speaking at the launch of the event former Ireland International and friend of Axel, Shane Byrne said “We started this fixture back in 2008 and it has grown every year, raising over £500,000 for charity. However, this time around it will take on added significance - Anthony played in this game before and I know that he would have loved another crack at the English. They have had the upper hand of late, but we have plenty of Irishmen waiting to take the fight to them for one last time in a green jersey!”

Ireland Legends v England Legends will take place at the RDS on Friday 17th March with kick-off at 6pm. Tickets for the event are available on Ticketmaster now.
