Back The Roar’ campaign.
Fifty Fine Things 2011 voting ends on Saturday so we thought this would be nicely timely as so many of you seem to be deep in lurve with the Irish rugby team. Pretty much the whole lot of ‘em made 2010′s top 50, with Tommy Bowe scooping the top spot. And hey, hands up who’d like to be that gal in the pic above, eh?
The reason why we’ve got a photo of our rugby playin’ lads on the site is because the good people at O2 – official sponsor of the Irish rugby team – have a pretty fantastic prize for Beaut.ie to give away: we’ve got two ladies O2 Rugby home jerseys in size 10, and what could be better than that? This: they’ll be signed by either Brian O’Driscoll or Paul O’Connell!
It’s all to celebrate O2′s Be The Difference campaign which asks supporters to record their roar and get behind the Irish rugby team for the 2011 RBS 6 Nations Campaign. Head over to bethedifference.ie to upload your own roar to the Be The Difference website.
The team will be picking their favourites before the France and England games at Aviva Stadium – *swoon* Tommy Bowe might personally hear your screech of support, and sure who could resist that? And by registering on the site you can also be in with a chance to be on the pitch on match day as part of one of the players’ jersey numbers. There’s lots more happening as part of the campaign too, like an app available for download through iTunes and the O2 app store and there’ll also be mobile recording booths appearing in O2 stores throughout the country during the championship.
So, how do you go about winning one of those signed jerseys?
