Injured players supported by the IPF were invited to HQ to watch the England team train in the lead up to the RBS 6 Nations.

Injured players supported by the IPF were invited to a special event at Twickenham to watch the England team train in the lead up to the RBS 6 Nations.

Alongside individuals supported by other Try for Change charity partners, several injured players saw the team train together at the home of England rugby for the first time under new Head Coach Eddie Jones.

At the end of the training session the players and coaching team made a big effort to talk to the injured players and their family in the stands as well as posing for photos and signing autographs.

As one of the founding charity partners of the RFU’s flagship social responsibility programme, Try for Change, the Injured Players Foundation were given special access to the training session which was attended by a total of 15,000 spectators including Grassroots clubs, local Twickenham residents, England Rugby Supporters Club members, Debenture and box holders, commercial partners and the RFU’s Try for Change charity partners.

The event also included a question and answer session with new captain Dylan Hartley and players Jack Nowell and James Haskell.
