RUGBY RUGBY RUGBY!
How better to enjoy the summertime with your mates than watching a Rugby match with a cold beer. The lively atmosphere in a stadium means that you don’t even have to organise anything apart than getting to and from the venue, and perhaps a few drinking games during… Before you do go, make sure you’re up-to-date with rugby news at Foxy Bingo Super League, as well as getting a roundup of who you will be watching and the venue before you start planning this event for the stag.
A stag do classic! There’s a reason grown up men enjoy shooting each other with paint and comparing bruises with each other. It’s because we’re all big kids at heart. It’s a barrel of laughs that will ensure everyone from the group who might not know one another, gets to do so. Make sure you plan this a few weeks before the wedding though because you are all likely to be covered in bruises and very sore!
