The Initiative

Rugby Centurions, a world first is the fulfilment of a desire to create a colossal force for good. It emanates from the recognition and unification of rugby’s finest warriors. This is a kinship of iconic men and women who have represented their countries in 100 international rugby test matches.

It takes an international rugby player around 10 years to earn the right to membership of Rugby Centurions; a decade in which lovers of rugby gain great knowledge and inspiration from their icons’ achievements between the four white lines.

While other wonderfully talented players come and go, these exceptional and inspiring warriors provide the continuity and epitomise the core values – integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and mutual respect – that we all admire from cramped seats in packed rugby stadiums or from sofas in front of TV screens.
