About the event

The Rugby Club of Victoria is proud to support a fundraising lunch for Jimmy Orange's Academy Movement, with Special Guest John Eales

In a little over three years Jimmy Orange has done what few thought possible - established a network of Government schools each with thriving Rugby Academy programs, bringing hundreds of new players to the game and making a rugby competition between State schools possible for the first time in Victoria.

Even more impressively, Academy Movement's involvement has seen a step change in school attendance and academic outcomes.  Jimmy's program is creating opportunities for kids to dramatically change their lives for the better, all through rugby.


Wallaby great, World Rugby Hall of Famer and dual Rugby World Cup winner, John Eales has agreed to support Jimmy's great work by speaking at this lunch where all funds raised will go to helping Jimmy continue to establish new rugby academies.  

Show your support for Academy Movement and help improve the lives of hundreds of kids though rugby, while enjoying a fantastic rugby lunch and hearing from one of the game's all time greats.
