Why study with us

  • Coaching: The coach creates the environment and encourages the values for which rugby is famous. A coach helps all players to be the best they can be and to get the most they can out of playing the game.
  • Refereeing: It’s easy to become a rugby referee and it comes with a shiny whistle! But it also comes with a huge amount of respect and appreciation.
