Regent House pupils lift RBS Six Nations Trophy as it makes surprise visit

Regent House rugby players got the surprise of their life as they got to see the famous RBS Six Nations Trophy up close.

The coveted trophy was at Hughes Insurance to showcase the shared values that Hughes Insurance and Ulster Rugby have regarding improving rugby in the community, the continual development of talent and inspiring young people to be the best that they can be.  

Hughes Insurance, sponsors of the Hughes Insurance Ulster Rugby Academy, received a surprise visit from the RBS Six Nations Trophy - recently lifted by Ireland Captain Paul O’Connell at Murrayfield, following a roller coaster final day of Six Nations rugby.  

Rugby players from local school Regent House had their picture taken with the trophy while staff and family members of the local company also got to enjoy the experience.  

Hughes began their sponsorship of the Ulster Rugby Academy at the beginning of the 2012 / 2013 season, with the aim of providing a continuous flow of indigenous rugby talent with the ability to perform to international, European and PRO12 standard.

 The local insurance company is also a proud sponsor of The Hughes Insurance Family Stand at Kingspan Stadium.
