The Rugby World Directory (RWD) has clearly stated values which we identified prior to commencing on our mission to build this resource. These principles and values have been our guide through thick and thin.


Here they are:


Honesty - Integrity and respect of others and the sport.

Simplicity - We believe in clarity, transparency and ease of use.

Accessible - We are open, unbiased, and independent and strive for positive benefits for all.

Reliability - Our experience creates the foundation for delivering a solid product for everyone to use.


We have also defined our personality, which can be summed up as genuine, optimistic, smart and active.


These values and our personality combine to keep us true to our ultimate mission: that of creating a true world-wide rugby Community.


Inherent in all of this is our absolute desire to ensure that RWD is safe for everyone that uses it. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this and we need everyone to work together to keep our community safe.
