Welcome to Rugby Uncle

Rugby Uncle has been set up to provide support to rugby players in disadvantaged communities. Setting out we are focussed on India as this is where we have first hand experience of the effect of rugby on young people and how it can change lives.

As Rugby Uncle begins its journey we will begin by focussing on two main areas; giving youngsters access to organised rugby and support to players who want to better themselves. Within each area there are many ways Rugby Uncle will look to support players always bearing in mind the rugby ethos of teamwork, understanding, co-operation and respect.
