Round 10 once again sees the Guinness Premiership clubs working with title sponsor GUINNESS® to raise awareness of responsible drinking habits. Throughout the weekend GUINNESS® will be helping promote the importance of responsible drinking by introducing a variety of activities for fans at all home Premiership grounds.
Building on the success of last year, there will be an interactive game at each ground to highlight the influence of alcohol - and many of those taking part can get a voucher for a free pie, courtesy of GUINNESS®.
The six home clubs will also be provided with responsible drinking bar kits, which include T-shirts for bar staff, as well as tip cards and posters all outlining the Ref's Bar Rules: namely drink water, eat food, look after your mates and don't drink and drive.
GUINNESS® promotional staff will then be handing out free bottles of water at the end of the match to help fans rehydrate before enjoying their evening's entertainment.
Enjoy your Guinness Premiership rugby responsibly - remember the Ref's Bar Rules.
