Mark your diaries.

Next Tuesday April 4, Limerick will see a world record attempt at a a rugby scrum in honour of the late Munster coach and general Irish legend Anthony Foley. 

'Scrum For Axel' is being organised by sports management students at Limerick Institute of Technology. They are hoping to gather 2,000 people together to form the scrum and raise funds for a charity nominated by the Foley family.

The initiative is being backed by Anthony's sister Rosie who speaks of how brilliant the idea is in the below video:

'Scrum For Axel' will take place at LIT next Tuesday at 12 noon. 

The current record for the world's biggest rugby scrum was set in Fukuroi, Japan in September 2016. It was previously held by students of Blackrock College in Dublin and the Irish Youth Foundation.
