What’s it all about

Rugby League star Mose Masoe suffered a career-ending, life-changing spinal injury when playing in January 2020. The Foundation will support him, and others, to rebuild their lives.

Mose's Story

The Mose Masoe Foundation is being launched in light of Mose’s situation to;

  • Provide relief of financial hardship amongst current and former rugby players by making grants of money for providing or paying for items, services or facilities.
  • Provide relief of mental hardship amongst current and former rugby players
  • Support ex-players who have and/or are suffering from spinal injuries affecting their welfare and quality of life.
  • Raise awareness of spinal injuries arising through playing rugby.

Why we say ‘It’s time to Walk and Talk

The Mose Masoe Foundation will adopt the strapline ‘It’s time to Walk & Talk’.

We feel this message is hugely important as any rehabilitation from a life-changing spinal injury involves far more than aiming to walk again.

In Mose’s own case, his first steps were widely celebrated and his smile suggested he was doing well.

It was only a year after his accident that he opened up about the ‘dark days’ he suffered mentally, and admitted the level of support he required.

The Mose Masoe Foundation will not only seek to support players in their physical recovery from serious spinal injuries, but importantly also work to help address the mental impact upon players as they come to realise they are unlikely to ever be the same person again.

‘It’s Time to Walk and Talk’

The Foundation will help people by;

  • Making financial grants to individuals
  • Making financial grants to organisations
  • Providing access to advocacy, advice and information.

The foundation has support from prominent figures in the sport of Rugby League community in both the UK and Australia to raise vital awareness for the organisation. These supporters do not receive any benefit from the organisation and are raising awareness and support the organisation as they are passionate about the aims and it being a vital support needed for sufferers of spinal injuries.

Words from the game

“I was thrilled and honoured to be asked to become an ambassador for the Mose Masoe Foundation and I am proud to be able to support a wonderful, inspirational family.”

Jenna Brooks, Sky Sports Rugby League Reporter

Words from the game

“Mose is a man 100% deserving of our support as a sport. Whenever I think about him I think of his big beaming smile, a smile that he still has today despite all that has happened. He was a great player and he’s a great man.”

Mike Rush, Chief Executive, St Helens

Words from the game

“I’m proud to be supporting Mose in any way I can as he has been an inspiration to all of us in how he has handled what has happened to him. If it had happened to any other player, he’d be doing the same for them.”

Weller Hauraki – Former teammate
