ACCOMMODATION:

Similar to last year, Plassey Village is set to be the exclusive Pig ‘N’ Porter Village, some say it’s the ideal location, others say it’s brilliant for midnight tactics, all we know is that its available at scrum-collapsing rates. One man recently said that the only thing he’s seen as comfortable as the beds in UL since last July was the Leinster fullback line against Wasps in the Champions Cup, excusez-moi?

 The accommodation is furnished to Grand Slam standards throughout, but don’t get us wrong, it’s not exactly Buckingham Palace, however, there’s free parking outside, so there’s no need to worry about where you’re going to leave your chariot for the weekend, also, for the Instagram and Snapchat Kings & Queens of the teams, it might be worth noting the free WiFi available in this village is quicker than Stringer was off the back of that scrum against Biarritz in ’06.

 Also, don’t worry if you plan to ruck and roll at Old Crescent RFC all night, our accommodation is only a 10 minute ?m?a?u?l? drive away! So, don’t knock it on and call today for further details and avoid disappointment!
