The Modified Rugby Program (MRP) is a new, modified form of rugby in which each boy and girl with a learning and perceptual disability has their own PlayerMentor on the field supporting them. Through the MRP, boys and girls experience the sheer thrill of playing rugby often for the very first time. The MRP embodies the essence and spirit of rugby, a sport which embraces inclusion and diversity.
The MRP is only a success due to the extraordinary support of a range of people passionate about inclusion through rugby. These include Nathan Sharpe and Tim Horan AM our MRP Ambassadors, the Queensland Rugby Union (QRU), the Australian Rugby Union (ARU), the inspiring Rugby Clubs hosting MRP teams, our Coaching staff, PlayerMentors, Allied Health professionals, all our MRP families, our inspiring sponsors and the support of the wider community.
A big thank you for an extraordinary 2016 Modified Rugby program (MRP) season to all the people who came together this year to create the amazing experience we’ve all had through the MRP. We’ve shared so much, learnt so much and our inspiring MRP family continues to grow and thrive. None of this could have happened without your support and contribution. So as a thank you from us to you, please watch this video!
