Douglas won the trophy in 2012 and are expected to fight hard to retain it. It is for men of 35 or older to engage in some physical activity and fun. They are called affectionately by the locals the old farts. The teams will consist of old rugby players from all over Ireland and United Kingdom and beyond. The teams are 10 aside to help you find a team on a reduced pitch with short games with unlimited substitutions. Upon registerating the players receive the Nine Golden Oldies Laws. An optional day away has been planned for visitors before playing rugby. There will be a choice of golf or deep sea fishing. Earl
