The 12 club Directors of Rugby had their pass measured on the GUINNESS Power Pass and Gloucester's Dean Ryan registered a whopping 25.9 mph, beating Sale Sharks' Philippe St Andre in the GUINNESS Festivals Director of Rugby's Table.
The fifth GUINNESS Festival will take place at Kingsholm on Saturday 14th February 2009 against Sale Sharks so the fans should get into practice to see how they rate against their heroes.
Before checking out the match action, fans will have the chance to win prizes, test their rugby skills and enjoy a pint of the black stuff at the festival. There will be opportunities for visitors to test their reactions on the GUINNESS Rugby Reflex and see how quick their hands are on GUINNESS Power Pass. All scores from the challenges throughout the season will be added together to see which club is crowned 'GUINNESS Festival Champions'. Everyone taking part will also have the chance to get their hands on season tickets and other GUINNESS merchandise.
Lee Bailey, Sponsorship Manager from GUINNESS said:
"We know there are certain games throughout the season that people really look forward to. The GUINNESS Festivals will add to the atmosphere and enjoyment of these matches and, whatever the result on the pitch, they can enjoy a pint of the black stuff and test themselves against fans at other clubs and also the power and speed of GUINNESS PREMIERSHIP players."
