Rugby Players Ireland is mandated by its members to act in their collective best interest in relation to player welfare and issues affecting the game in Ireland. The association acts as a conduit for member concerns and provides a platform whereby issues surrounding their welfare can be raised at the highest levels by the Rugby Players Ireland Executive Board, led CEO Simon Keogh and
Chairman Rob Kearney. Rugby Players Ireland represents its members on many national executives and committees to ensure its concerns and opinions are voiced. As valued stakeholders in the game the players should be effectively represented to promote their views to further the growth and success of Irish Rugby.
