The newly-branded Ireland Police Rugby team will take on a British Police Select Team at Newforge in Belfast later today.
The Ireland Police Rugby Team is a combination of members of An Garda Síochána and the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
Ireland Police Rugby was founded in 2003 but, today will be their first game playing in their new kits, which display their newly designed rugby badge.
It is also the third fixture against the British Police, with the winners this year taking away a newly-presented Challenge Cup.
Co-chair of the team, PSNI Chief Inspector Tim Mairs said: “We are delighted to officially launch our team and new branding and play the British Police.
“Today strengthens the good relationships we have with our colleagues from An Garda Síochána.”
