The Story of Jimmy Peters

Jimmy Peters was a five-cap England Rugby International, and the first-ever black rugby union player to play for England, having made his debut for the nation in 1906. Ahead of the World Rugby Museum's new exhibition dedicated to Jimmy, which is due to be revealed this October, we have had a look back at his life, and his famous rugby career.

This October, a new exhibition at the World Rugby Museum will tell Jimmy's remarkable story, from his childhood in the circus to his England call-up in 1906, celebrating his life and career achievements. Learn more about Jimmy's story, and experience our new exhibition yourself, by booking a visit to the World Rugby Museum.
