Details

Since the formation of the Royal Air Force 100 years ago, close to 200 RAF service men and women have represented their countries on the rugby pitch. From April, the RAF’s contribution to rugby will be celebrated in a special exhibition.

With the foundation of the Royal Air Force Rugby Union in 1920, a tradition of rugby excellence was established that has continued to this day. Many distinguished rugby players have been amongst the ranks and officers of the RAF, including Cyril Lowe, Bleddyn Williams, Rory Underwood and George Beamish. The high calibre of rugby has been maintained in the modern era by the likes of Wales’ Sian Williams and Charlie Murray, and England’s Amy Cokayne. The World Rugby Museum’s RAF Rugby Union exhibition will explore the achievements of these individuals and have on display significant objects from their RAF and rugby careers, including jerseys, caps, photographs and medals.
