Keith Moran wins Man v Food 

On Saturday 8th July Newbridge RFC, in association with the BRU House, ran a Man V Food fundraiser. Held in the BRU House Newbridge ten contestants from the club's senior panel took part in a food eating challenge against each other until just one remains. Last man standing and winner was Keith Moran.

**Congratulations Keith **

All food was from the BRU House menu (https://www.brubrewery.ie/food-pub-newbridge/) and was prepared by the BRU House chef. Well done to all contestants. A great night was had by all attending so a big thank you to the BRU House and to everyone who supported the club's latest successful fundraiser.

Big Crowd in Rosetown for Lions Test

There was a good attendance in Rosetown to watch the final test between the Lions and the All Blacks. Attracted by the offer of sausage sambos and a video for the kids the bar quickly filled up for the early 8,30am kick off. Thanks are due to organiser Barry McCann and "Head"chef Sean McCann ... plus the many who helped on the day. All who attended certainly had a great start to their day.
