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 ambassador - Amy Evans
Amy Evans has had an incredibly rapid rise to the top level of women’s rugby.

She only began playing the sport in 2014, when she turned out for Skewen RFC.

Unbelievably, just five months later, she was selected for the Wales squad for the Women’s Six Nations and she made her debut off the bench against England in a 13-0 victory.

The powerful tight head prop now has over 20 caps and continues to play for her club, along with regional side, the Ospreys.

"I decided just to play rugby as a bit of fun," said Evans. "Being in a team environment and having the players and your friends and family helping you along, it takes the pressure away from you."

Amy may have only started playing rugby at a late age but she was an avid sports fan as a girl. She began competing internationally in weightlifting and represented Wales at several events.

When Amy is away from the playing field, she works at a gym and is a fitness instructor.

Her battle with diabetes is indicative of a strong-willed sports women who we are delighted to have in the didi rugby family.
