Sharing our message
 
Elliot Daly scores a try against Ireland in the Six Nations

We wanted our message of support to be heard loud and clear, to show we're here for rugby players and fans alike. And we did just that. Our logo stood out on the perimeter boards as Elliot Daly scored his memorable try in Englands 24-12 win over Ireland. 

A panel for our corporate members
 
Gabby Logan hosts a panel with Dylan Hartley and Heather Fisher

Led by Gabby Logan, we hosted a panel discussion to over 90 guests on the importance of tackling mental health issues in the workplace, engaging the core HR industry at a pre-match event at Twickenham Stadium. Our rugby stars shared their experiences of how dealing with adversity can often build resilience which in turn can lead to successful outcomes.

Exercises for everyone
 
RugbySafe warm-up exercises outside Twickenham

A 30-strong dance troupe took to the floor outside Twickenham stadium to showcase the Rugby Safe Activate warm-up exercises. Promotional staff and students handed out exercise sheets to educate the fans on the exercises and brought to life the theme of ‘always be ready for your next game’. 

And congratulations to all at England Rugby.
 

An amazing effort. Winners of the 2020 Six Nations tournament.

Always be ready for your next game… with Dylan Hartley

 

Former England Rugby captain and Simplyhealth ambassador Dylan Hartley kicked off our campaign by highlighting some of the warm-up exercises all players should do. But remember, being ready for your next game isn't just for rugby players, it’s for all of us. 

 

“No need for the brave face. If you need help, that’s what Simplyhealth is here for. If you're feeling it ‘Get seen, Get Sorted'” - Dylan Hartley
