When not playing for their respective teams in Rugby’s elite English Premiership, rugby stars Marcus Watson and Matt Hopper can be found travelling through Asia and exploring the unique experiences Karma Resorts offer.
Watson, 25, plays for the Newcastle Falcons and was part of the silver-medal-winning English Rugby 7’s team at the Rio Olympics, while Hopper, 32, has just finished an illustrious tenure with the Harlequins to move to French club Oyonnax.
During their stay at Karma Kandara and Karma Jimbaran, the pair spent a day at the Bali Life Foundation – a charity that provides love and care to those in Bali who are disillusioned and disadvantaged, with the aim of giving them hope, dignity and purpose. In conjunction with Rugby Development Bali, who provided professional equipment and trainers to help out, Watson and Hopper were given the opportunity to teach local children rugby’s finer points of play.
