NORTHWICH’S biggest rugby fans are being given the chance to meet a rugby legend and walk away with £1,000 thanks to a local pub.

The Lodge Flaming Grill pub on Winnington Lane is searching for ‘try-hard’ fans who could win the ultimate rugby viewing experience with former England international Andy Goode.

And if you are lucky enough to be chosen, you could join the rugby legend to watch England’s final group game of the World Cup against Argentina.

The chosen superfan will also be able to bring five mates to the pub for the VIP screening, which will include unlimited food and beer as well as Greene King’s newly relaunched IPA.

Cassandra Bonser, general manager at the Lodge, said: “Nothing compares to watching the rugby in the pub surrounded by other fans to share the atmosphere and comradery.

“We pride ourselves on being the home of pub sport in our local community with an unbeatable viewing experience of all the big games across major sporting events.

“So, if you live and breathe rugby and fancy £1,000 cash, as well as the chance to meet rugby legend Andy Goode, then we want to hear from you.”

Andy Goode added: “The Rugby World Cup 2019 is finally upon us and it’s great to see fans across the country getting behind their home team.

“I can’t wait to meet the biggest rugby fan in the community and look forward to raising a glass with them on match day.”

To enter, locals must explain here in less than 100 words or less why they deserve the title of Northwich’s biggest rugby fan.

Key matches for the Rugby World Cup, including all home nation and knockout stage games, will be aired at the Lodge and more than 500 pubs nationwide

For an extra reward, sports fans can also download the Greene King Season Ticket loyalty app which offers sport fans 10% off drinks one hour before, during and one hour after selected sports matches.
