This is your chance to prove you know more about sport than us...

Join The42 team in Coppers for a lot of trash talk and some delicious nibbles.

  • What was the name of the dog that found the Jules Rimet trophy?
  • How many international points did Ronan O’Gara score?
  • Why can’t I get any phone signal in here?

ON WEDNESDAY EVENING we’re holding our first annual Big, Big Sports Table Quiz to celebrate the release of our first book Behind The Lines.

And we’d love for you, the commenters, to join us and show us how much you actually know about sport.

On arrival you’ll receive a free copy of the book as well as a cool drink. We’ll have food throughout the evening as well as the chance to win some prizes… including a Coppers Gold Card and much-coveted The42 gear.

Doors at 6.30pm, it’s teams of four or five and there’s more details below.
