International students – opportunity to give rugby a go

Rugby is a hugely popular sport and conversation topic in Aotearoa NewZealand. If you knew nothing about rugby, it could be quite challenging to immerse yourself in kiwi culture.

Do you want to give it go? Rugby X “Have a Go” sessions are taking place in July and August. These are especially designed for new comers and international students with no experience or previous knowledge of rugby.

Come and join us for a fun afternoon of rugby, meet some new friends and learn something new together. It will be an unforgettable experience for all.
