“Northampton Saints is proud to support the Premiership’s ‘Rugby Against Racism’ initiative, which commits to making English Rugby a more diverse, welcoming and inclusive sport,” said Mark Darbon, Northampton Saints Chief Executive.
“Everyone involved in our sport, our communities, and the society we live in, has a role to play in advancing this mission, but we recognise that there is still more that we as a Club can do in this area. As a result, we are already reviewing our approach to diversity and inclusion, and our strategy will be made available later this year.”
The Saints playing squad will support Rugby Against Racism when they host Wasps this Sunday at Franklin’s Gardens (kick off 3pm). The 23-man matchday squad will wear t-shirts with the message adorned on the front, and it will also be displayed on the big screen and LED boards around the stadium.
Prior to kick-off, the players will form a circle formation which they have chosen to signify the importance of inclusivity and togetherness for everyone in the game.
