GBWR’s second ambassador is former Wales international rugby player Rupert Moon. For the announcement, Rupert joined over 40 juniors at Llandarcy Academy of Sport on Sunday 18 November for the Lord’s Taverners Welsh Junior Festival.
David Pond, CEO of Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby said: “We are delighted to be at Llandarcy for this fantastic tournament and to see how wheelchair rugby is growing in Wales. It’s also really exciting that Rupert has accepted our invitation to become an ambassador. He has already done a great deal to raise the profile of the sport in Wales and his infectious enthusiasm and genuine willingness to support those who play will make a huge difference to the game in Wales. I would also like to thank all partners in Wales especially the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust whose support has been critical in enabling us to grow junior and adult wheelchair rugby in Wales”.
Rupert Moon said: “I’m honoured to accept the role as an ambassador and look forward to continuing to work with GBWR to help more disabled people experience the joy of the game. If you have yet to see it then get along get yourself to Leicester for the Quad Nations in March when GB take on the best in the world”.
