Schools Rugby

Rugby at primary school and secondary schools in New South Wales is extremely strong.  The public and private school systems provide many interschool competitions and representative programs which culminate with the selection of state teams for the Australian School Championships held annually.

Primary school rugby is administered by the NSW Public Schools Sports Association (NSWPSSA), whilst private schools operate their own interschool matches and competitions. Read further information.
