Pack Down with Bhubesi Pride on Rugbydump

Pack Down with Bhubesi Pride on Rugbydump

A few months ago I introduced you to Bhubesi Pride and the charitable African rugby coaching expedition that will take place next year. Team members have since been chosen, but they still need one more female member. Im also pleased to announce that well be producing a video documentary, called Pack Down , that will be exclusive to Rugbydump and feature unique updates from the trip.

If you arent familiar with Bhubesi Pride and the TransAfrique 2011 trip, a group of seven volunteers, along with project co-ordinator Richard Bennett, will be heading down from England to Cape Town via Land Rover, stopping off at 15 schools in 10 African countries.

The aim is to provide change and upliftment to underprivileged communities, with rugby as the vehicle. They will not only coach the sport, but also empower local coaches and provide support for health and social education. Links schools in the UK will also be set up to provide further support, making sure that the legacy of the 6 month journey lives on.

Rugbydump is pleased to get behind the expedition by working with Bhubesi Pride to bring monthly video updates to the rugby community via the Pack Down series, which is an exclusive initiative between us. Short updates will also be shown on Sky Sports and the IRB's Total Rugby.

Incidentally, I'm proud to say that a few of the team members were chosen from applications that came through Rugbydump.

One of the reasons for this update today is that Bhubesi Pride still needs one more female member . If you're over the age of 23, female, a rugby enthusiast, and have the adventurous spirit and relevant qualifications, then apply today for what should be an incredible trip that will no doubt change lives forever. APPLY NOW

Always good to see the promotion of Rugby, hopefully with the pride and repect the game (at most times) demands.

This site never ceases to surprise me with what it's involved in. From big name star interviews to causes like this, you're all over the place.

That said, I'm extremely jealous that there are places where there appear to be a surplus of rugby coaches (enough that they had to have try-outs!); in the US, we seem to just take whatever we can get really. If the guy is old/experienced and seems to know the game pretty well, welcome aboard.
