MUNSTER AND LEINSTER natives can look forward to a healthy dose of provincial rivalry this weekend, with the two provinces facing off in the Guinness Pro14 on Saturday at 7.30pm.

It’s the long-awaited return of rugby to Irish soil after a 175 day absence, and although fans won’t be able to head along to the Aviva Stadium to watch, supporters all over the country will no doubt be planning at-home celebrations.

In the spirit of gathering at home, Guinness has teamed up with burger restaurant BuJo to create two limited edition burger kits, one for Leinster and one for Munster. For €40, you’ll get burgers, buns and sides for 8, plus 2 commemorative Guinness glasses engraved with the match date, and four cans of Guinness.

There’s also the chance to win one of two rugby golden tickets, entitling the winner to a pair of passes for each of Ireland’s home fixtures in the 2021 Guinness Six Nations.
