The Rugby Players Association Annual Induction Day 2014Posted on
Himsworths Legal appeared, for the third year running, at the Rugby Players Association’s annual Induction Day at Loughborough University. The induction day introduces academy players from rugby union’s Aviva Premiership to the issues, stresses and strains that they may face as they commence a career in elite sport.
The firm speaks frankly to players about the media spotlight, and particularly, about the growing influence of social media on reputations and careers.
We thank the RPA for their outstanding hospitality in this excellent event. We should also thank Newcastle Falcons player Will Witty who commented that he found our session “the most engaging part of his day … The social media seminar really took my attention because it highlighted how important it is to be aware of your online profile. You need to watch what you post and when you post because anyone can see your profile and anyone can take offence to it.”
