At home games we operate a gazebo in the northern corner  of the Piley Rees, where members congregate, meet up with friends, secure a seat or position themselves to watch the game with an uninterrupted view. Snacks and cooldrinks are served.


After the game, we are invited to join the Principal and his guests in the Heatlie, where we catch up with old friends, ex-players, and visiting school supporters to discuss rugby.

 We also set up the gazebo for select Prep games at Lutgensvale.

  • Why do we play this game?

    Rugby is where a whole life can be trampled into an hour, where the emotions of a lifetime can be felt on a pitch of ground, where a person can suffer then die and rise again. Rugby is a theater where sinners and layabouts can be saints; a common man can become an uncommon hero and champs can become the chumps. It is a place where the past and the future so often fuse with the present. Rugby is singularly able to give us crowning experiences where we feel completely one with the world and transcend all conflicts as we finally become our own potential. ~with apologies to George A. Sheehan.

  • 'I have no doubt that you could pull rugby players out of their many other commitments at this busiest of schools. They could do pillar strength at short break, gym before school, condition during chapel, work on fundamentals and core strength at long break and train every afternoon. We might even beat Gym away. But is that really what we are after?' John Dobson
