Tiger Rugby has grown from a local touring side, to an internationally respected rugby brand with touring teams that cross the globe looking for new places to compete. Over the last 7 years alone we have competed at the Nelson Mandela Bay 7's in South Africa, Mar Del Plata Argentina, Fiji, Bora Bora Tahiti, Safari 7's Kenya, Shanghai 7's China, Melrose 7's Scotland, Cancun 7's Mexico and Central Coast 7s in Australia. In addition international representative players from USA, New Zealand, Kenya and England come through our ranks. In late 2012 we opened our first High Performance Olympic Development Academy to identify and train up the next generation of rugby stars. Is there a Tiger in you?
You can't expect to play to your full potential unless you train to your full potential. At our Tiger Rugby High Performance Centers, we immerse our athletes in a professional environment where they can push themselves to realize that potential. Please browse to our Academy tab above to get more information on how you can get a chance to train with us.
