London Irish Rugby Disability Festival

London Irish are one of 14 Premiership Rugby clubs taking part in Project Rugby, a new grassroots engagement initiative in partnership with England Rugby and Premiership Rugby designed to increase rugby participation in under-represented communities. The programme will specifically engage black, asian & minority ethnic people, people from low socio-economic backgrounds and people with disabilities aged 14 to 24 with rugby union with the aim to engage 12,000 participants by summer 2018 in over 200 community areas across England.
