didi Rugby Ambassadors

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.

didi ambassadors - Heather Fisher
​Heather Fisher is a hugely recognisable figure on the Women’s rugby circuit and an inspiration to those around her.
 
Having began her time in the public eye on the Great Britain bobsleigh squad, taking part in the British Championships and European circuit, she moved into rugby and became one of the game’s hardest workers and toughest tacklers.


 
She won her first international cap for England against the USA in 2009 and that was the start of a wonderful career that has propelled her onto the world stage.
 
She is now a World Cup winner at 15-a-side after success in France in 2014 and has represented her country at the 2009, 2013 and 2018 World Cup of Sevens.

Helping to mentor

 
She was also a member of the Great Britain squad that came so close to a medal at the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio.
 
Heather has worked on behalf of the Youth Sport Trust as a Sky Sports Athlete Mentor and will now be helping to mentor some much younger athletes as a didi rugby ambassador!


 
“I am really pleased to become an ambassador for didi rugby,” said Heather. “It is a fantastic organisation that will generate confidence and skills for little kids.
 
“It’s absolutely brilliant to be a part of it so thanks for having me on board. I am looking forward to working with everyone involved.”
