The UK�s most successful Rugby Club, World Champions, Bradford Bulls, yesterday launched their new �Away� shirt in the Republic of Ireland. The shirt, in the traditional Irish green colour, has the name of one of Ireland�s leading Charities, the Jack & Jill Foundation, on the sleeve and the Bulls will make a donation to the Charity for every shirt sold.
Bulls players Paul Deacon and Karl Pratt were in Dublin for the launch and presented a shirt to Damien Thomson of Holy Rosary School who won a competition run in conjunction with Ireland�s leading daily newspaper, the Irish Sun. The Bulls will undertake further development work in the Republic in January of next year.
Bulls Community Development Manager, Chris Rostron, said:
"We are very proud to be able to support the Jack and Jill Foundation in this venture and our activities at the launch see a continuation of our commitment to further develop Rugby League with all communities. The Jack & Jill Foundation is a very worthwhile cause, which we hope the Rugby League Community in general will support. The launch is a further stepping stone in our five year development plan for Ireland and we are looking forward to returning to the Republic in January."
