Former England Rugby hero and Bath player Mark ‘Ronnie’ Regan MBE is set to join customers of Slug and Lettuce in Bath this Sunday ahead of England’s Six Nations clash against France to meet rugby fans, enjoy a pint and talk tactics.

Mark who represented his country on 46 occasions as hooker will be at the bar on George Street, from 1.30pm this Sunday 11 March. The match against nemesis France, who were responsible for England’s early exit from the Rugby World Cup in October, kicks off at 3pm.

Slug and Lettuce customers and rugby fans will get the chance to meet Mark and listen to his views on the game whilst enjoying a pint of Greene King IPA, the Official Beer of England Rugby.

“No one loves rugby as much as a Slug and Lettuce Bath customer and we are honoured to have rugby legend Mark Regan joining us this Sunday ahead of the England France match. His knowledge of the game and locker room tactics will give our customers a fantastic insight into the match”, said manager Leanne Morrall.

In addition to this opportunity any true rugby fan would love, Slug and Lettuce has teamed up with Greene King IPA to offer six of its customers plus a guest spectator each, the chance to take part in a training session with the members of the England squad which make up the First XV. Winners of the ‘money-can’t-buy’ prize could be teaming up with backs Chris Ashton and Ben Foden, learn to kick with Toby Flood and take their chances in the scrum with the likes of Dan Cole and Matt Stevens at the official training ground of the RFU.

The competition, available to enter online at or via selected Slug and Lettuce bars, including Bath, is open until 31 March 2012. Terms and conditions apply.
