Rugby

At Bishop Vesey’ Grammar School we place great importance on school rugby as the values of rugby are reflected within our school; Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.  Our boys enjoy the challenge and reward of playing rugby, with regular fixtures against some of the strongest rugby schools in the Midlands and beyond.  In 2014/15 we will enter national competitions at u13, u15 and u18 age groups, seeking to build on our achievements in both the fifteen a side and seven a side variants.

We are proud of our history and have both schoolboy and full international players amongst our alumni.  In J.R.C. Young we have an England international and a British and Irish Lion who represented the combined side on no less than fourteen occasions.

We aim to provide the best possible coaching from committed rugby staff, and offer all our boys the opportunity to train both during games lessons and after school. Our devoted groundsman of forty years plus Mr Brown ensures our seven rugby pitches are in prime condition whatever the weather. 

UK based touring opportunities are provided for the U13/14 squads in the Michaelmas term and in addition we offer a worldwide bi-annual tour for senior boys during the summer term.  Recent destinations have included Canada and Barbados, Australia and New Zealand, and in 2015 we will be touring South Africa.

In summary, we consider ourselves privileged to play the game and we are determined to perform to the best of our ability.
