“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.
It speaks to young people in a language they can understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair”.

NORTHLAND RUGBY SET TO BOOST COMMUNITY RUGBY PARTICIPATION

Northland Rugby Union has engaged Rugby For Life to coordinate and run ‘Grow The Game 2023’ for the whole of Northland rugby.
