Becoming a PlayerMentor for an MRP Player at your local rugby club provides an exciting opportunity and very rewarding experience for boys or girls between the ages of 13-24 interested in making difference to a child who may never have played a team sport before.

To learn more about what it means to be a PlayerMentor, here’s a great video!


PlayerMentors apply to be part of the MRP via and an Expression Of Interest (see link below) The process involves a series of questions and a Video.

Once assessed, successful PlayerMentors register online through the relevant Club as Non Playing Volunteers if they are not already a registered player.
