Rugby Sporting Code
Rugby is held in the second half of the Trinity term and is played in a 10-man format. Only the U12A and 1st teams play the full 15-man format. Different rules are implemented in different age groups for safety reasons. Full inter-school fixtures take place allowing every boy the opportunity to play competitive matches against similarly skilled opponents. Any boy from U9 to Open may play rugby.

The objective is not just to win, but rather to foster a love for the game and to equip boys with the necessary skills to enjoy this ultimate team sport.



  • Maroon rugby jersey and white shorts
  • Wearing a gum guard is compulsory
