As the Rugby World Cup comes to a climax and in the build up to the final, the biggest names in Rugby are urging supporters around the world to celebrate grassroots rugby by wearing their Club socks to work this Friday, 30th October 2015.
Rugby World Cup winners Jonny Wilkinson, Bryan Habana, Brad Thorn, John Smit, Will Greenwood, Lawrence Dallaglio and a host of other star names are encouraging fans to put team rivalry aside and come together for one day to shine a spotlight on grassroots rugby during Rugby World Cup 2015.
Rugby World Cup 2003 winner Lawrence Dallaglio will be taking part in the day and commented: “Wear Your Club Socks to Work Day is a great initiative to encourage fans from around the world to share their support of grassroots Rugby. I will be wearing my Staines RFC socks and I would like to encourage everyone no matter where they are to join in the fun this Friday.”
Fans who engage in the initiative and send through imagery of themselves in their club socks using #WeDealInReal will be in with a chance to win prizes. The more players that wear their club socks to work, the more chance they will have of winning coaching sessions and signed merchandise from rugby legends such as Lawrence Dallaglio, Sir Clive Woodward and Will Greenwood.

Fans are encouraged to join colleagues and share pictures with @LandRoverRugby using #WeDealInReal to show their support of grassroots Rugby.
