THE IRISH International Rugby Union team arrives in the Algarve on Sunday for a week of training at Browns sports and leisure club in Vilamoura in preparation for the Six Nations Tournament which starts in February.

After a highly successful autumn series of internationals, which saw the Irish beat South Africa, Australia and the Pacific Islands, the players will travel to Browns following this weekend’s Heineken cup games.

Subject to confirmation, Villamoura Rugby Club will be inviting all junior players, between the ages of 10-16, to a training session at Browns during the Irish team’s stay.

All players, with or without experience, should contact Browns on 289 322 740 to reserve a place.

Following the training there will be canapés and drinks for all the junior players and their parents and friends at Browns, sponsored by Newlyn Portugal.
