UWC Rugby

UWC Rugby, Since being established in 1965, UWC RFC has produced a number of players who have not only represented their province and South Africa (under both pre- and post – unity dispensation), but have also gone on to occupy important administrative and leadership positions in the rugby administration at different levels.

The Alumni of the UWC RFC bear testimony to the fact that the club has been a feeder, not only to the university RFC, but to the community at large.

We believe that Rugby represents a huge nation-building opportunity for South Africa and the university is a strategic vehicle to form part of this important transformation process, noting the opportunities we can offer with higher education as a critical vehicle.

UWC RFC has the opportunity to facilitate wider access to rugby players from the disadvantages communities and, as a student-based club, our members are particularly receptive to the vision to which we aspire.
