Mose allowed his name to be used for the organisation as he is a prominent figure within the Rugby League community and his profile and story will be helpful when raising awareness and support.
Having played for the Samoan national team, Sydney Roosters and Penrith Panthers in Australia’s NRL, and for St Helens and Hull Kingston Rovers in the UK Super League, he is very well known and loved by rugby fans in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
It is hoped that through the work of the Foundation, greater awareness will be brought to the injuries that can occur whilst playing rugby, both physical and mental, and the impact this can have on lives, not only of the injured player but also on their families and support systems.
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.
“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
“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
“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.”
