James Lowe

James Lowe is a fun-loving Kiwi who arrived in Ireland in 2017. James quickly endeared himself to the Irish rugby faithful through a series of energetic performances, characterised by the unrelenting smile across his face. During his time with Leinster the province has won the Pro 14 twice, in 2018 & 2019, and the European Cup in 2018. It has been a dream start to his new life in Dublin for Lowe. James’s distinguished rugby career boasts of caps for the Super Rugby club The Chiefs and the renowned Maori All Blacks. His enthusiasm for the game can be seen every time he runs out on the pitch making him a firm fan favourite.

As a TYF ambassador, James is an advocate for gaining perspective & trying to find a positive in every situation. He encourages people to stop and take a step back from the tough times to help gain perspective of the overall picture. Using this method has helped him to really appreciate the positives even when he is finding a situation challenging.


Darren Cave

A real attacking talent, Cave was another young player who has come up through the Ulster Academy system and upgraded his development contract to a full contract with Ulster ahead of the start of the 2008–09 season. He is a strong runner and tackling centre who has made a rapid progression at international level, having helped Ireland win the Grand Slam during 2007 Six Nations Under 20s Championship, starred in Ireland's Rugby World Cup Sevens qualification and he has represented Ireland 'A' as they won the 2009 Churchill Cup.

As a returning TYF ambassador, Darren is an advocate for making conversations about mental wellbeing a normal part of everyday life. He encourages people to stop and take a step back to get some perspective in order to focus on the how fortunate you are and all the good things in your life. This has helped him to move on from his regrets and focus on his mental wellbeing.
