didi Rugby’s wonderful ambassadors share our passion for getting children involved in the sport of rugby.
They are also keen to promote the values that are right at the core of what we do.
We have Olympians, internationals, World Cup-winning players and coaches, British & Irish Lions and Aviva Premiership winners too, who are prepared to support us and give up their time as part of the didi family.
These ambassadors know exactly what is needed to get to the top – but they are also just as keen to promote the positive values of the sport to those children beginning their rugby journey with didi Rugby.
There are Women’s Rugby World Cup winners like Emily Scarratt, Vicky Fleetwood and Sarah Hunter.
World Cup-winning coaches like Gary Street and other professional coaches from the men’s game like Geordan Murphy (Leicester Tigers) and Graham Rowntree (British & Irish Lions, England and Harlequins).
Graham said he was a huge advocate of didi Rugby: “Having been involved with rugby at all levels my whole life, I totally believe that the values it instills in little ones to play fair, share with friends, and show respect for each other, as well as the obvious health and fitness benefits that are vital for youngsters.”
Leicester Tigers scrum-half Sam Harrison is still playing the game but is passionate about a didi Rugby class right on his doorstep which he takes his daughter to.
Away from rugby, former Leicester City and Scotland defender, Matt Elliott says he is a huge fan of getting kids involved in sport and author and broadcaster Rosemary Conley wanted to become an ambassador because it encourages a healthy and active lifestyle.
We are very proud to have such a large group of sporting professionals endorsing our didi Rugby programme.
Natasha Hunt is a feisty scrum-half who plays for England and club side Lichfield.
She has been within the England set-up from a young age and has worked her way up to the national team with whom she has won numerous honours.
Starting with the England Under-20s, Natasha moved up to England A, England Sevens and then the national team where she enjoyed a memorable time helping them win the World Cup in France in 2014.
She has also won the Six Nations title, been a tournament winner on the Sevens circuit and represented Great Britain at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
Natasha still has as much love for the sport of rugby as she has always had since she began playing the game as a child.
“I have played a lot of different sports growing up and I just think there’s something really unique about rugby as there is such a strong bond off the pitch because of what you do on it,” she said.
