Rugby For Heroes – the charity set up earlier this year to support servicemen and women returning to civilian life – is due to release the charity single 'With Pride' in September, ahead of the Rugby World Cup.
Aviva Premiership stars and Forces rugby players met up at Twickenham Stadium to shoot the video shoot, and among the players who turned up to show their support was England and Northampton Saints prop Paul Doran Jones, who said:
"Rugby for Heroes is a great charity and an extremely worthwhile cause. Being part of the music video to accompany the song was pretty exciting to be honest. It's great to see so many big names show up to back the song and let's hope it get's high in the charts."

Players from the RAF, Navy and Army mixed with stars from England's leading clubs, including Premiership winners James Short and Kelly Brown from Saracens and Worcester's No. 10 Andy Goode, to hit the high notes and support the charity.
Some of the music industry's leading lights have lent their skill to the project including award winning song writer Pete Kirtley.
Funds raised by the release of the single will help ex-servicemen and women make a smooth transition to civilian life. The Rugby For Heroes song will be available for download from September 4th.
