Jacob Stockdale playing for Ulster Rugby team

On a much happier sporting match Ulster and Ireland rugby star Jacob Stockdale has announced his engagement. In what is like a story from a true love magazine Jacob and Hannah Garrett first met at school when he was 11 although romance did not blossom until relatively recently.

The rugby star says he is not a natural romantic but his assertion that he could not think of a better person to spend the rest of his life with than Hannah is bound to cause a few heart flutters. Congratulations to the couple have begun flooding in from his international team-mates and we are happy to add ours to the ever increasing list.
