Will Carling Up for Auction 

San Diego, CA (March 28, 2012) - Own a unique piece of rugby history while supporting youth and high school rugby in the United States by putting in the high bid for a replica England rugby jersey signed by the man who captained England at the 1991 and 1995 Rugby World Cups and captained his nation's team on 59 occasions, Will Carling.

Will's signature was collected prior to the Wales-England Six Nations clash in the Carling Room at Twickenham last month.

"The money raised through these auctions will allow us to continue to provide support to youth and high school rugby."

Not only will the high bidder of this replica England jersey receive a rugby memory that will last a lifetime but they will have the satisfaction of knowing that every cent from their winning bid will go towards the United States Rugby Football Foundation.

Photos of the signed jersey and more information about Will Carling's brilliant career can be found on eBay, item #180851892882. The bidding will conclude at 9:00 a.m. (PDT) on Wednesday, April 4, 2012.
