First World War memorial challenge
2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War. Tens of thousands of English rugby players lost their lives in the Great War. The RFU and World Rugby Museum are encouraging clubs to honour the contributions of their own members. The following documents will help you to plan how you can turn this project into reality at your club:
- First World War memorial challenge information and guidance (PDF 168kB)
- List of 27 England internationals who passed in the First World War (PDF 816kB)
- Clubs in existence in 1914 (MS Excel 20kB)
In November 2014, 12 proactive Young Rugby Ambassadors from across the country were nominated by their RDOs, together with four National Youth Council members, to attend the England Training Camp at Pennyhill Park where they had the opportunity to interview England Internationals Joe Marler and Jack Nowell.
All participants had a great time and the video, which captures the spirit of the day, can be viewed here. We hope you will download it for use in clubs and to recruit more YRAs.
