The Rugby Black List is positioned to help shine a light on black professionals and volunteers alike working, playing and volunteering in the rugby union world. The aim of the event is to inspire the next generation of leaders in sport. This includes the community game, talent pathways, and the elite game. Administrators, coaches, referees, volunteers, players, leaders and senior decision makers, there is a place for everyone in our game.
There is still a lack of representation of the black community within rugby union. However, it is important to celebrate the progress that has been made by recognising the achievements of black role models, with the hope that many more follow in their footsteps.
