Iona Rugby Union

"It's not about rugby. It's about young men. It's not about making a championship team. It's about making championship boys. Boys that will be forever strong." Larry Gelwix

'Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success'.


Rugby is a game of team work – to go forwards, you must go backwards.

Iona rugby aims to develop core skills while honouring the traditions of fair play and sportsmanship.

Being one of the most popular co-curricular sports, over 50 coaching staff guide the 500-plus junior and senior rugby players, and is played during Term 2.

The 1st XV have been successful with multiple premierships and the College has produced seven Australian Schools representative players.
