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 - Charlie Clare
Hooker Charlie Clare is looking forward to a fresh and exciting start in Bedfordshire in 2018.
The former Leicester Tigers forward has moved back to play for the Bedford Blues having spent three years at Goldington Road before a move to Northampton Saints in 2016.

He is also looking forward to “getting stuck in” helping the county’s youngsters pick up a ball and have some fun as an ambassador for didi rugby.
“I’m so excited to get involved with didi rugby,” said Charlie.

“didi gives young children the chance to learn not only physical skills and get them active, but they also get the opportunity to learn about the values of the game and that is important too.
“I can’t wait to get down and do my part in educating the next generation.”
Charlie will be working closely with owners Ben and Georgie Gulliver to spread didi rugby Bedfordshire far and wide – and will also be helping the Blues in their quest for Championship glory.
“I am delighted to be returning to Bedford and feel very privileged to have been asked back,” Charlie told the club’s website. “Bedford is a proper rugby club. The supporters, the current players and coaches are who I want to be with.”
