Rugby

RI has a history of high achievement in Rugby with the Under 45kg team winning the 2015 Auckland Central Zone Rugby Tournament and then placing 2nd at the Auckland Championships Interzones.

Teams

There are three teams for boys: Under 45 kg, Under 55 kg and Open Weight.  The girls’ team is Open Weight.

Players are expected to commit to at least one practice per week at a time agreed with their coach.

If you wish to trial for one of the Central Zone Rugby 7's teams you will need to complete and return this form by Monday 11 September 2017 Registration Form

Trials

Trials for all teams are held late in Term 1 or early in Term 2, depending on ground conditions.  Trial dates and times are published in daily notices.

Competitions

The three boys’ teams compete in the Central Zones competition at Avondale Racecourse in August.  There are also a number of lead up games against local schools, all held during school time.

The girls’ team competes in the Central Zones competition in May.

Fees

The only cost associated with participating in rugby is for bus transport.  Uniforms (apart from boots) are provided by the school.

Coaching and Team Management

Teams are coached and managed by volunteers so we rely heavily upon support from parents and friends to ensure that our teams participate.  We also rely on parents for transport to some games.

There is an opportunity during the registration process to indicate any offers of assistance.
