Rugby promises to provide every pupil at RGS with the opportunity to maximise their potential in a dynamic and fun learning environment. We are committed to coaching four technical skills that make up our ‘RGS Identity’. Our focus on the technical aspects of catch and pass, ball presentation, low tackles and awareness, builds to our aim of playing an attractive and enjoyable brand of schoolboy rugby.
With close links to the professional game in the English Premiership and Guinness Pro 14, there are opportunities for aspiring young rugby players to forge their way into Elite Academies. RGS Worcester has a rich history of producing Academy Players for the Worcester Warriors and alumni include Jonny Arr who is the highest capped Worcester Warriors player ever. These players are supported tremendously by our Athlete Development Programme, which offers strength and conditioning, individualisation and specialisation, as well as mentoring by one of our Elite Coaching Staff.
Those who represent the School 1st XV get the unique opportunity to play at Sixways Stadium, the home of Worcester Warriors, in the Modus Cup. Supporters come in their thousands to cheer on the team in what is a special experience for all those involved.
RGS Worcester is proud to be able to provide multiple team fixtures across all age groups. With training and home, fixtures played at our historical Flagge Meadow playing fields, we believe in promoting traditional rugby values as well as our own Charter for Sport values, to be ‘Resolute, Gracious, Selfless and Willing’. RGS Worcester pupils are ‘proud to be Green’ and we hope to see you in green soon too!
RGS has recently started playing Girls’ Rugby, which is proving very popular. So popular that we have entered teams into the National Rosslyn Park Sevens Tournament, where the Girls made the National Plate Quarter Finals.
Rugby Sevens has become a real focus for RGS as the fixture list has grown in the Lent term. The skills required for the game sit well with our RGS values and principles and also help ensure that fitness levels remain high in preparation for pre-season training.
