Gordon Dale, who served with the Royal Air Force and was injured playing rugby in 1985, is still very much part of the Injured Players Foundation family although now living in the land of the long white cloud.

IPF specialist knowledge and dogged determination recently ensured that one injujed player wasn’t left sleeping on his sofa – not a great situation for someone with a spinal cord injury.

Lee Jones and his fiancé Laura left their 22-month-old twins Harley and Noah in capable hands and were honoured guests in the RFU Injured Players box at Twickenham to watch England secure the Calcutta Cup.

An online rugby auction launches today in support of the RFU Injured Players Foundation, featuring rugby memorabilia including signed England shirts, a signed South Africa shirt from their victorious 2007 Rugby World Cup campaign, and post protectors from the 2015 Rugby World Cup Final.

After fearing he would never walk again when he suffered a serious neck injury playing rugby, 14 year old James Gray will now take on an epic Coast2Coast Cycling Challenge, riding from Whitehaven to Sunderland from July 11-13 in support of the RFU Injured Players Foundation.

The England Legends v Wales Legends fixture sets the stage for the Rugby World Cup tie between England and Wales.

The match will take place on Thursday 24 September at the Twickenham Stoop, compounding the excitement and build-up to the Rugby World Cup fixture between England and Wales on Saturday 26 September at Twickenham Stadium.
