Our Purpose

Our purpose is to tackle poverty, disability, exploitation and human trafficking by applying rugby’s values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.


100 World Legends achieve that purpose by giving. Giving time. Giving support. Giving encouragement. Giving hope. Giving back.

Giving back to the sport which gave, and continues to give them, so much.

Entertaining crowds, allowing club players to take to the rugby field with their heroes, raising money, promoting rugby’s core values to business and working with charities and children across the world.

While the pictures on this website are worth a thousand words of explanation, David Corkery, capped 27 times in Ireland’s back row, captured our work perfectly in his heartfelt post following a 100 World Legends’ mission to Laos in July 2019.

My father once told me that an invitation to journey to pastures new must never be refused, if at all possible. So, when the opportunity landed in my inbox to visit Laos, a Southeast Asian country which borders Vietnam, the answer was a resounding yes.

From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of explosives on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions—equal to a planeload of bombs every 8 minutes, 24-hours a day, for 9 years making Laos the most heavily bombed country in history and a large proportion of these bombs still lie just below the surface in an unexploded state.

As an ambassador for a charity called “The 100 World Legends” which comprises of a cohort of ex-international rugby players (male and female) from over eighteen countries, this was a once in a lifetime experience that I was happy to sacrifice some annual leave for.

The sole reason for the 100 Legends existence is to help children’s charities by passing down many of the boundless values that Rugby/sport instils in our children.
