International Rugby Players represents professional players across the globe on areas of importance to the game.

Whether it’s player load, head injury assessments or better conditions in emerging nations, our Players Council helps magnify our voice on the key issues facing the game, as we seek to make it better for all.

The Players Council, which meets and communicates on important issues throughout the year, is made up of the top men’s and women’s, 7s and 15s players from around the world.

Spearheaded by our Council President Johnny Sexton (Ireland), we want to ensure that those making the important decisions put player needs front and centre.
