Ulster Rugby V Glasgow Warriors – Saturday 18th February
Hughes Insurance are proud partner of Ulster Rugby, and sponsors of both the Hughes Insurance Family Stand and the Hughes Insurance Ulster Rugby Academy.
On the 18th February, we celebrated the Ulster Rugby Family Day while the team hosted last year’s Guinness Pro12 Champions, the Glasgow Warriors. The stands were full of music, face painting, competitions, freebies, photo booths and even the players were keen to join in, kicking signed rugby balls into the Family Stand.
The Hughes team were on hand to get the party started with free ticket competitions and plenty of chances to share the love on Facebook and Snapchat. No one could resist getting in on the fun – not even beauty queens! Check out Miss Northern Ireland Emma Carswell and former Miss Northern Ireland Meagan Green having fun with the Hughes Snapchat filter.
As our Family Stand regulars will know, we can’t resist the chance to unveil the Hughes Insurance and Ulster Rugby banner on match days and Saturday was no exception!
At the end of the day, the result was a good one – Ulster came out triumphant, beating Glasgow Warriors 37-17. The home win saw Ulster take Glasgow’s place in the top five and they are now just 6 points from the top four and in sight of the play-off places for the championship.
We can’t wait to see everyone in the Hughes Family Stand for the next Ulster game on Friday 3rd March when they take on Benetton Treviso.
