MyHeritage DNA Uncover Rugby Legends Origins

The following announcement was written by MyHeritage:

As the biggest rugby event of the year gets underway in Japan, we wanted to share an exciting project we’ve been working on. In the run-up to the tournament, we 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 we brought them together to reveal their ethnicity breakdown, information about their DNA Matches, and share some family history research that we uncovered, including historical records and photos of their ancestors.


The players were amazed at how simple it is to unearth such rich information about their ancestors using MyHeritage DNA, and some were a little shocked by the surprises in their ethnic makeup. Some of the players may be cheering for new teams now that they’ve uncovered their heritage!

We were delighted to have the opportunity to bring together these legendary rugby players and introduce them to the exciting world of family history and DNA testing. They were truly in awe of the stories they heard and the new insights they gained about their family histories.

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