Community | 1st February 2023


Defender is on the look-out for some special youngsters to join them at Rugby World Cup 2023 in France. 

Is your child passionate about changing the world for the better? Do they help out in your local community or provide a service to support others? Whether it is big or small, we want to hear about how these youngsters are committed to improving the world around them. 

If your child is chosen as a Defender of Tomorrow, they will act as a mascot at Rugby World Cup 2023 later this year in France and walk out with one of the teams. 

Apply now for the chance for your child to be a mascot at Rugby World Cup 2023
