COMPETITION: Your chance to be a mascot at Ricoh Arena Six Nations day

RUGBY UNION: A SIX Nations double-header is taking place at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on Friday, March 16 – and you could be there.

England Women take on Ireland Women at 5.30pm before England Under-20s do battle with Ireland Under-20s at 8pm in what could be title deciding games, and your child could be there rubbing shoulders with the next Elliot Daly or Danielle Waterman.

We’ve teamed up with the Ricoh Arena to offer two lucky readers the chance for their child to be a mascot at the womens match or the Under-20s fixture.

The winners can be accompanied by an adult, and will be taken on a pre-match tour of the changing rooms before running out with the players on to the pitch before kick-off.

England are Grand Slam champions across both the women and Under-20 formats and begin their Six Nations defence in early February, where they will be striving to sign off with a trophy presentation at the Ricoh Arena.

To enter your child into this mascot competition, answer the following question: Which country won last season’s Six Nations title in the Womens and Under-20s formats?

Email your answer to sport@coventryobserver.co.uk and title the email as Six Nations.

The winners will be drawn and notified after the closing date which is midnight on Wednesday, January 31.
