TEAMS representing two leading charities – Scotty’s Little Soldiers and School of Hard Knocks – will face off next month as they attempt to break the world record for the longest rugby game.
44 players will compete in the 30-hour-long game held at the home of London Irish, Hazelwood in Surrey.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a national charity supporting children who have lost a parent in the British Armed Forces.
The charity’s CEO, Stuart Robinson, said: “We are thrilled to be involved in a world record rugby match challenge with the School of Hard Knocks.
“There are going to be some tired legs after the 30 hour game, however, I just want to say good luck to both sides and thank you to everyone who is supporting the two amazing charities.”
School of Hard Knocks, uses rugby as a platform to help people realise their potential in life. Through a combination of rugby training and class-based sessions, the charity helps adults who are long-term unemployed find the confidence, skills and resolve to get back into the workplace.
