The Wallabies are proud to announce Hearts in Rugby Union as their official charity partner for the 2022 Test season.

Established in 2007, Hearts in Rugby Union is a charity that assists players who have suffered severe life changing injury during a rugby game

Their aim is to ensure those severely injured players who are suffering financial hardship receive the best possible support throughout their lives.

Significantly, today marks the 26th year to the day since Founder, Rocky Mileto, suffered a spinal cord injury while playing halfback for his beloved Orange City Lions against Dubbo.

Mileto and the founders living by the Hearts in Rugby Union motto of, “Helping Rugby Help Its Own”.

Hearts in Rugby Union will run 50/50 raffles at all Tests during the eToro England Series, which kicks off this weekend in Perth.
