Mastercard Watch: Dan Carter and Bryan Habana surprised a Women's Rugby team!

This is what happened when Dan Carter and Bryan Habana casually showed up at a local High School rugby match.


Johannesburg, South Africa – Mastercard, a Worldwide Partner of Rugby World Cup 2019, is strengthening its commitment to rugby in South Africa and how the sport brings our country together!

Mastercard recently unveiled a Priceless Surprise where its Rugby World Cup 2019 ambassadors, Bryan Habana and Dan Carter surprised young learners at a High School Rugby match.

The young scholars were playing a “friendly match” when Habana, one of the top test try-scorers of all time, and Carter, New Zealand star and three-time winner of the prestigious World Rugby Player of the Year award, casually walked onto the field.

Habana and Carter shared their personal experiences, provided encouraging and motivational tips on the importance of club rugby and personally coached them on key plays to give the youngsters an advantage on the field, and in life.

Released as part of Mastercard’s Start Something Priceless campaign, the Priceless Surprise demonstrates that together everything is possible and how passions like sport can help people overcome personal challenges, confront bias to pursue their dreams and transform adversity into strength.

“Rugby is a passion that has the power to transcend boundaries and bring us together – as a nation, as proud fans and as players of a sport,” says Beatrice Cornacchia, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications, Middle East and Africa at Mastercard.

“As a proud partner to Rugby World Cup 2019™, we are looking to Start Something Priceless in South Africa, and what better way to inspire, and change the lives of these inspirational women, by delivering unexpected experiences delivered by these rugby superstars themselves.”
