RFU Injured Players Foundation:

We are England Rugby's official charity: the Injured Players Foundation.

With your backing, we look after seriously injured players for life and help prevent future injuries through research and education.

Our mission is to be there for every seriously injured player, now and forever. And we must continue to make research breakthroughs to make the game safer and improve the care of those injured.

But we need everyone that loves our great game to get involved. 100% of your support goes directly to injured players and prevention research – because the RFU cover all our admin costs. So please help today.
