National Rugby Week Prizes

CONGRATULATIONS to the three schools that registered as an 'early bird' during May and were selected to receive a match ball from the Wallabies v France test matches.

  • Newcastle High School, NSW
  • Eimeo Road State School, Rural View, Nr Mackay QLD
  • Geraldton Senior College, WA

The match balls will be signed by newly appointed Wallaby captain Michael Hooper and the French captain - at the conclusion of each of the three matches. We will be sending the balls out after the series (final game June 21 in Sydney) and we trust it will find a suitable place of honour in the school.

We hope ALL of you are planning for plenty of activities in NRW - Register here. Don’t forget we want to hear what your school gets up to during the National Rugby Week via a short online report from your key teacher. Schools will be judged on their level of involvement playing NC7s, promotion of the Rugby values, and their overall creativity during National Rugby Week!
