The club's
introduction

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.

Only three in every 1000 international rugby players ever reach this massive milestone. As members of Rugby Centurions the Toughest Membership in the World; this rare and select breed of rugby players are uplifting lives by making the wonderful game more accessible and desirable to the growing number of rugby fans and players across the globe. Rugby Centurions are luminaries, gladiators and warriors. But above all they are people. They have given so much. And now, as a unified force, they’re giving back even more.

Giving back by
never giving up

As well as celebrating the achievements of its exalted membership, Rugby Centurions has a larger, more profound goal; to use the combined weight of experience and expertise of its members to grow grassroots rugby where it is most needed, where it can make an indelible difference to people’s lives.

Narrowing the gap between rugby and other global sports will result in greater financial investment and growth in this game that more and more people love … and love to play.

The centurion
foundation

The Centurion Foundation is a dynamic, ever-growing source of ideas and influence. The Custodians, themselves Rugby Centurions, actively unify, grow and develop rugby globally; as well as help identify, allocate and distribute Foundation funds wherever and whenever required. They make sure that the funds are correctly allocated. Their fellow Centurions also identify regional player welfare and rugby development projects that will benefit from Centurion Foundation support.

Rugby is a unique kinship. Centurions are aware of the plight of many players and families who have fallen on hard times. The Centurion Foundation, with its influence and global footprint, is there to help.

The Centurion Foundation is privileged and honoured to have His Royal Highness Albert 11, Sovereign Prince of Monaco, as its Official Patron.

The aspect of sport that you learn is that you have your good times and your bad times, but you share it with great people.

When I started at Barking [RFC] I had no idea I would end up as president of the RFU but, then again, I never thought I would be playing for England.
