Engaging Young People
More than half of rugby union players in England are under the age of 19 and more and more of them are from non-traditional rugby backgrounds. Rugby union is higher profile, more visible, more attractive than ever. There are more and more channels that can be used for young people to engage with the game and the England team.
RFUTv has behind-the-scenes footage of match-day preparation and player interviews.
We also want young people to engage through Official England Facebook and Twitter where they can access exclusive footage and be a direct part of the action.
It's not all about the playing, rugby has opportunities at all levels for young people to get involved through leadership, writing match reports for your team, filming the action and most of all upskilling and developing the individual and making them more confident as they progress.
