Inclusivity

Rugby is an inclusive sport and we want all players to feel embraced and accepted for who they are. In this section, seven players share their experiences of a range of personal topics, including race, religion, sexuality and identity, to increase awareness and understanding of the different demographics and experiences of fellow players. Regardless of who you are, we want players to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin so that they can flourish on and off the field.

In these case studies, players discus their experiences of these key areas:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexuality
  • Disability
  • Identity
  • Culture
