Rugby has a strong tradition at RGS and is played at a competitive level throughout the School. RGS fields 14 teams across six age groups, supporting pupils from those new to rugby all the way through to those who achieve international selection. Pupils follow the Rugby Player Development Programme throughout their time at RGS and are supported by Physical Education staff and current and ex-professional coaches as well as ex-international players to give them the best possible experience.
We play weekly matches with a strong fixture list and take part in national competitions for Under 13, Under 15 and Senior age groups, including the Natwest Cup and regional competitions for the Under 16s. In the Lent term we play Rugby Sevens competing in local and National competitions.
RGS has a proven record of developing players who aim to play beyond their school years with many gaining county, national and international honours in the process. RGS has strong links with the Worcester Warriors and has produced players who have played for the Warriors at Premiership level. Current Warriors players frequently assist RGS coaching staff and inspire our young rugby players. Our coaching staff have a wealth of experience from playing, coaching and selection up to and including international representation making RGS an exciting place to learn and develop in rugby.
