The Rugby Players’ Association (RPA) last night hosted its annual London networking evening in association with the RPA’s Official General Insurance and Pension Partner, Aviva.
Over 20 players from Wasps, London Welsh and London Irish were joined by a number of RPA partners and business people.
The event, which took place at Aviva’s London Head Office, was organised as part of the RPA Player Development Programme (PDP) which aims to individually support and guide its members in their personal and professional development and provide them with the skills needed to make a successful transition into life after rugby.
Andrew Fenby, RPA Player Representative for London Irish, said: “I can’t stress enough how important it is for the RPA to have the support of global companies such as Aviva and for players to have the opportunity to come along to evenings such as this one. Putting plans in place for life after rugby is something we should all be thinking about and the PDP is the perfect platform for career exploration.
