Plenty of names from the game are paying homage to the mothers out there!

Rugby stars celebrate Mother’s Day

It may be a time of self-isolation, social distancing and quarantine; a time when we cannot visit loved ones while we all deal with the fallout of the spread of Covid-19. But that doesn’t mean that on Mother’s Day, star names from the game of rugby are not celebrting mothers and partners.

This is what social media should be for in tough times like these.

The above video of Maro Itoje doing a cooking session with his mother is the first prime example of top Mother’s Day content.

Of course club sides and international teams have gotten in on the act too.
