Rugby fans should reeeally check out this event taking place in Herbert Park on the day of the Guinness PRO12 Final. We've a feeling it's gonna be your cup of tea.

Just 15 minutes away from the Aviva Stadium, the park will be hosting The Rugby Zone on Saturday, May 27. The free event will have fun for all the family, boasting food from Irish Village Markets, live music, a 'Skills Zone', and appearances by players from the tournament's finalist teams, who'll be giving insight on the day's big match.

You can also get your picture taken with the Women's World Cup giant logo and the Guinness PRO12 trophy might even make an appearance.

In the Skills Zone you'll be able to test your rugby prowess, with challenges like speed cages, reaction boards and skills-based tests to try out.
