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.

Women's rugby

"didi rugby will be brilliant for women’s rugby because it ensures a bright future by getting girls to join in and begin playing a fantastic sport," she said.
"The idea of didi rugby is important because it focuses on young children. It encourages them to pick up a ball and learn some core skills while having fun at the same time."
Carys is one of a number of high-profile sports women who have become ambassadors of didi rugby to support the Swansea franchise, which has been thriving under the leadership of Robyn Lock.
MBE Non Evans was at the Swansea opening while women’s internationals: Alecs Donovan, Amy Evans and Siwan Lillicrap are adding their energy and experience too.
