Land Rover launched its Rugby World Cup 2015 campaign by teaming up high-profile rugby players with Racal Decca RFC, which is recognised as the smallest rugby team in the world.

The international players assisted the local team in matchday preparations as they got ready to take on rivals Streatham-Croydon 3rds.

The game was hosted at a neutral venue in Hampshire, as neither side has its own clubhouse.

The event was part of Land Rover’s campaign to showcase local clubs ahead of this year’s Rugby World Cup 2015.

Robert Holmes, honorary secretary and treasurer of Racal Decca RFC, said: "To be rewarded with such a wealth of international rugby talent assisting us with our matchday activities has been a truly unforgettable experience."

Mark Cameron, Jaguar Land Rover global brand experience director, said: "Building on this long heritage within rugby, We Deal In Real aims to give grassroots clubs the opportunity to experience the media spotlight, while staying true to Land Rover’s brand values."
