Schools rugby is governed by a committee of Teachers in Charge of Rugby. Teachers are appointed by the School Principal and act on the Schools behalf. An executive is elected and are responsible for day to day operational decisions and to resolve any disputes that may arise. The Vision of Schools rugby is "foster a life long love of the game". In 2020 our focus will be establishing relationships with junior and senior clubs and working collaboratively together to grow our game and provide positive experiences.
