Grasshoppers make The Pack for RWC2015
Over 4,000 Rugby World Cup 2015 volunteers, known as 'The Pack', came together at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes on Saturday 16th May to kick-start the final countdown to the Rugby World Cup which starts on Friday 18th September.

20,000 volunteers applied to be part of The Pack, with 10,000 lucky enough to attend the Try Out zones and 6,000 selected.

During the workforce launch event, The Pack volunteers were treated to motivational talks, hosted by John Inverdale, from World Cup winners Jason Leonard, Lawrence Dallaglio, Will Greenwood and Maggie Alphonsi, Welsh International Shane Williams and French International Serge Betsen.

Out of the 6,000 selected, four Grasshoppers will be volunteering during the six-week long tournament. Congratulations to:
Leroy Arbouine
Juan Murray
Marie Shaw
Mamita Woodward

We'll look forward to catching up with them before, during and after the tournament to see how they are getting on.
