Welcome to the 2017 Intermediate Schools Rugby Tournament which once again Harcourts Cooper & Co have kindly agreed to sponsor. The focus for the 2017 tournament will be on progression in rugby. To progress from Rippa rugby and the players skills this year we have introduced Girls Tackle 7’s and Girls Quick Rip. With the expansion of 7’s rugby in the girls area in particular, the North Harbour Rugby Union is aiming to grow the sport in this capacity, while offering more tackle 7’s tournaments for both boys and girls players. We will have the Development Grade for Boys 7’s again this year to give the smaller schools and/or younger inexperienced players an opportunity to give rugby go.
