Players from Sheffield Tigers, Chesterfield, Bakewell and Dronfield rugby union clubs competed on the hallowed turf at Twickenham, beating a combined team of the Houses of Commons and House of Lords. The event has raised over £10,000 for the Injured Players Foundation which is the Rugby Football Union’s own charity.

They not only look after seriously injured players for life they help prevent future injuries through research and education.

Their mission is to be there for every seriously injured player, now and forever and with continued research to make the game safer and improve the care of those injured. But they need everyone that loves rugby to get involved. 100% of support goes directly to injured players and prevention research as the RFU cover all our admin costs.
