He knows the importance of getting kids involved in the sport early and we thank him for helping us in our fundraising efforts."

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 Foundation.
