MRFC50 Buy-a-Brick Campaign: The curtain-raiser for the 50th Anniversary celebration is an engraved brick fundraiser. Help celebrate Monmouth Rugby’s 50th Anniversary by purchasing a brick for the new backyard walkway. Literally etch your name in the club history, or celebrate teammates or a memorable event. 4″ x 8″ and 8″ x 8″ bricks are available for $50 and $100, respectively.
Q: Where can I buy a brick?
A: Please visit www.bricksrus.com/donorsite/mrfc to select and personalize your brick(s). Paper forms are also available at the Wilde Rover.
Q: How do I pay for my brick?
