Teachers can continue the Rugby-themed learning experience by encouraging students to participate in a number of unique programs celebrating Rugby Union.
Thoughout the year, the EdRugby team runs a range of different programs including; Forums, Competitions, and Media/Reporter experiences.
Many of these programs give students the opportunity to be part of the professional game. For example, images sent in from schools for the 2007 Go Gold for the Wallabies were forwarded to the Wallabies in France, and put up in their team room during their World Cup campaign. And Wally images from St Josephs School in Belmore were sent to the Wallabies and Wallaroos for these team rooms in 2010.
The IRB has announced its match officials list for the second stage of the 2014 IRB Junior World Championships overnight, with two Australians appointed to referee two of the games in New Zealand on Sunday.
We’re excited to announce that Australian Rugby will be moving to a new online system for national competition management and participant registration for the 2014 Rugby Sevens season and the 2015 club Rugby season.
We’re set for an exciting year with plenty to look forward to in 2014, including our Qantas Men’s Sevens team competing in the Commonwealth Games (July), the Women’s Rugby World Cup in France (August) and the launch of a new domestic competition – the National Rugby Championship (August).
