Video: Rugby legends discover their roots through DNA testing


02 October 2019
Watch as four rugby legends explore their origins in a new DNA project from MyHeritage.

 In the run-up to the Rugby World Cup tournament, MyHeritage brought together 4 rugby legends to see if they share more in common than a love of rugby and to find out if their DNA comes from places other than the countries they represented for so many years. 


Each of the players took a MyHeritage DNA test, and were then brought together to reveal their ethnicity breakdown, information about their DNA Matches, and to share family history research that MyHeritage uncovered, including historical records and photos of their ancestors. 

To learn more about the rugby legends’ family stories, ethnicity results, and to watch them discuss their discoveries, visit the Rugby DNA website.
