Rugby For Life

Jan. 12, 2021, 9:28 a.m.

Rugby for Life is a community rugby partnership program that leverages the power of rugby to help improve the lives of all Northlanders and their communities.

Building on the networks, values and influence of the Northland Rugby Union and the Northland Rugby Community, the Rugby for Life program provides meaningful support to local communities at a local level in all corners of the region, to achieve positive health, education and employment outcomes for Northland.

The key focus for the trust last year and for 2021 is that Family Violence is not ok .

Project Coordinator Sharon Gibson, Ross Wright and Tui McGeorge tell us why Rugby for Life is so important in helping our most vulnerable in our community with life outside of rugby.
