This season RBS has developed RBS RugbyLink, a series of club, school and charity initiatives connecting fans with rugby and all its benefits.
Club: New for 2009, RBS is running a pilot scheme to encourage rugby supporters, friends and families to give something back to their local rugby club on a nominated weekend during the summer of 2009.
School: The Daily Mail RBS Schools Cup is a tournament open to 4,600 rugby playing schools in England at U15 and U18 level with the final held at Twickenham. The tournament, now supported by RBS, has been an ideal platform for future England players including current England Captain Steve Borthwick, Jonny Wilkinson and Danny Cipriani.
Charity: As part of RBS's £5 million package of support for The Prince's Trust, the RBS 6 Nations works with 32 Prince's Trust xl clubs across England, Scotland and Wales to apply rugby's team-based values to help young people struggling at school.
