Rugby is a major sporting code at the College with well over 300 students playing in the following grades: U13 (Weight Grade), U14, U15, U16, U18 and The Crusaders Press Cup Grade. Depending on numbers, we may have up to three teams in each grade at various divisions.

Pre-season skills, conditioning training and team trials will occur at various days during term one but these are designed not to interfere with summer sports.

The Canterbury Rugby Football Union has published Codes of Conduct players and parents and supporters and coaches and administrators.

Players are advised to check the preseason schedule posted on the English Office window for details of preseason skills and conditioning sessions held after school for those players who are not involved in summer sport.
