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 - Gary Street
Gary Street is the most successful England rugby coach of all time.
As head coach of the England Women’s team from 2007, Gary led them to a glorious World Cup victory on France in 2014. A 21-9 win in the final against Canada saw England crowned as the best team in the world.

With him in charge, England also won five Six Nations titles on the bounce, four Nations Cups and four European Cups.
That success earned Gary numerous awards and a nomination for BBC Sport Personality of the Year while his side were winning the Team of the Year at the same high-profile event.
Since leaving his post with the national team, he helped coach Aylesford Bulls to a league and cup double in 2016/17 and that side is now playing under the Harlequins banner in the inaugural Tyrrells Women’s Premier XVs.

Really proud

As part of an extended role with Quins, Gary is Academy Coach Development officer for the club working with coaches in the Developing Player Programme.
With the development of young players having always been close to his heart, Gary says he is delighted to be associated with a business that has been launched to do just that.
“I am really proud to have become an ambassador for didi rugby,” he said. “It is fun and entertaining and a great way to get kids active in the sport.
“Everyone should have didi rugby in their lives!”
