Bath Rugby show their support for the Movember movement

RobWebberBathMovember

Rob Webber might have been captain of the Movember movement at Bath Rugby but the hooker admits it is Argentine winger Horacio Agulla whose facial hair effort left him in the shade.

Premiership Rugby has announced a new and exciting partnership with the Movember Foundation, designed to improve the physical and mental health of rugby fans across the country and contribute to the vital fundraising efforts of the charity.

The new relationship sees the men's health foundation become an official charity partner of Premiership Rugby.

Central to the new partnership is to support the UK fundraising efforts, dedicated to changing the face of men's health in Movember, the month formerly known as November. 

So as the sun sets on Movember 2015, we're asking Premiership Rugby fans to make that final fundraising push and support your club’s efforts. With every pound, we get closer to a world where men live happier, healthier, longer lives. To donate to your team, click here.
 
There is a friendly rivalry within the squads as to who can grow the best mo and Webber acknowledges that Agulla will take some beating.
 
But he claims he is unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed with the attempt by Welsh fly-half Rhys Priestland.

“Rhys Priestland’s effort could be described as weak or strong whichever way you look at it,” explained Webber.
 
“Weak since he had to dye it to make it look like there was actually hair there. However it could be argued that is superb commitment and should be applauded. I say well done Rhys. 
 
“Horacio Agulla has an incredibly strong mo. I think he started growing it last year though!” 

At the heart of the partnership will be the new MOVE like a Pro initiative, launching in January, which offers rugby fans the opportunity to take part in a 12-week programme at their local Premiership Rugby club to increase health and wellbeing of fans at hour-long sessions using clubs' training staff and facilities to exercise and receive expert guidance.

The MOVE like a Pro programme will be part of Premiership Rugby's award-winning BreakThru community campaign and it's at the heart of the Movember Foundation's ongoing strategy to change the face of men's health.
 
And Webber insists that Bath are just happy to help in any way they can, rather than setting themselves a financial goal.
 
“There is no specific target money-wise, just to get as much as we can. We're raising money the old-fashioned way, with just mo growth,” he added.
 
“I think professional sport can be quite a macho environment and anything that helps to raise awareness of the risks that the male population faces is a good thing.”
 
There’s still time to support the Bath team, click here to donate.
