This weekend (28-30th April), all Aviva Premiership matches including Wasps' game against Harlequins will be dedicated to Restart Rugby, the official charity of the Rugby Players' Association.
Together we are aiming to raise £10,000 to help current and former players suffering from serious injury, illness or hardship.
We're also raising awareness for the #LiftTheWeight campaign which addresses mental health issues amongst our players. 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue each year. Rugby players are no exception. Restart Rugby supports players and their families during their most difficult times through 24/7 counselling service.
"Please help Lift The Weight during Restart Rugby Weekend and show your support for the charity which is there for us when we need it most." Alex Rieder, RPA Player representative for Wasps.
