Sligo’s Under11s are chasing the Big Guns, and, with Connacht Rugby’s help, they may just get them.

Strandhill’s Under11s are in the running to have Brian O’Driscoll, Johnny Sexton and Paul O’Connell give them a practice run, just like the O2 advert on television. The Sligo youngsters have been working hard not only on their marketing and support strategy, but their footwork too (they reckon there might be a gap or two on O’Connell’s outside) and would be very grateful for as much of your support as possible.

They have until the end of March to secure as many votes as possible, and the top three youths teams around the country then go on show in front of the panel…the O’Driscoll, O’Connell, Sexton panel, that is. Ireland’s formidable triumvirate then have the final say.

Votes may be cast online through, and click on the “rugby” tab atop the page. The “Gallery” option just over Drico’s head is your next step, find SLIGO ASSASSINS U11 SQUAD CHALLENGE YOU. 

And then VOTE!
