Mini rugby players from Ophir RFC had the opportunity of a lifetime on Friday evening when they got to participate in Centra Half Time during Ulster Rugby’s 17-15 win over Dragons at Kingspan Stadium.

The players from the Mallusk-based club also had the opportunity to meet Ulster Rugby players Tommy Bowe, Dan Tuohy and Willie Faloon, as well as everyone’s favourite mascot, Sparky.

At each of Ulster’s home fixtures, mini rugby teams from across the Province are invited to participate in Centra Half Time. This initiative, sponsored by Centra and its independent retailers, provides aspiring rugby players with the fantastic opportunity to play on the famous pitch, with encouragement from thousands of fans.
