The most prestigious club trophy in world rugby will make an appearance at the 2011 Normans Field Day in Dysart in Thomastown on Sunday.

Reigning Heineken Cup champions Leinster have agreed to the let the Cup pay a visit to the newest rugby club in the country.

And it is hoped that their arch rivals, Magners League Cup champions Munster, will agree to let that trophy take a spin to the South East to help inspire up-and-coming rugby players to get involved.

The Normans Rugby Club in Thomastown founded last year have their home ground in Dysart. The pitch sits alongside the banks of the River Nore  a few hundred yards from Dysart Castle, one mile out the rock road from Thomastown.

All are invited to come along for a fun-filled Field Day to support the club. There’s plenty of parking and the event will be signposted.

It is hoped the sun will be shining and organisers say to bring a picnic and make a day out of it.

Activities on the day will include penalty shoot-outs, long kicks and a variety of field events with a rugby ball.
