UC Cup and Championship 2020 Player Profiles


The University of Canterbury is proud to back the talented and passionate young rugby players who compete in the high school UC Cup and UC Championship.

With the help of the Crusaders, we looked for leaders from each school to feature in a series of player profiles. We were keeping an eye out for rising stars who: 

  • excel on the field as well as in the classroom
  • show their commitment to their team and their studies
  • contribute to their local community. 

The winning players:

  • took part in a professional and fun photography session
  • were promoted across UC, their school and UC Cup and Championship social media accounts
  • received a keepsake poster for the school
  • received a UC goodie bag

A number of players indicated that UC is “what’s next for them after school”.  Check out and read about our up-and-coming-leaders!

UC Careers are pleased to share information about this upcoming event on 15 October at 5:00 pm.

At BCG, we celebrate the diversity of our teams and recognise the importance of building an inclusive culture. Pride@BCG strives to make BCG the most fulfilling firm for LGBTQIA community members to work for, and actively recruits top talent and supports LGBTQIA individuals throughout their careers.

Our Pride@BCG team are opening their (virtual) doors to the student community to bring you a seminar on being your authentic self throughout any recruitment process. This is your opportunity to get to know our LGBTQIA employees and hear their stories as they have an open discussion and share their experiences on bringing diversity to the interview table.
