EdRugby and Qantas invite all schools in Australia to get active and have fun in the Qantas Walla Rugby Week being held Monday 12 September – Friday 16 September.
What is Qantas Walla Rugby Week?
Qantas Walla Rugby Week is a special week each year where students play at least 40 minutes of non-tackle rugby to promote the values of teamwork, camaraderie, inclusion and diversity. Students are encouraged to create their own rugby program for the week whether it’s staging an all school Rugby World Cup, creating rugby themed cakes in Food Technology class or designing jerseys for the Wallabies in Art class – the ideas are endless. At the end of Qantas Walla Rugby Week teachers are asked to submit a one-page Walla Rugby Day Report to be entered in the competition to win exciting prizes. ARU supplies easy to follow lesson plans that teachers with no prior rugby knowledge can follow to help create a successful exciting week.

Have fun and give Rugby a try!
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).
