Rugby’s Core Values
Rugby’s values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship are what makes the game of rugby special for those who enjoy the environment and culture they create.
Essential in the sport of rugby, playing selflessly: working as a team and not as individuals both on and off the field, relying on one another and taking pride in the team.
Mutual respect is the foundation of the sport, earning respect from your peers in the way you behave on and off the field. Respecting match officials, opposition players and supporters.
Enjoyment is the reason we play and support rugby union. Encouraging other to train and play and build life skills and promote a healthy lifestyle. Enjoyment comes from being part of a team, socialising and part of the rugby family.
Strong discipline is at the root of the sport of rugby. Controlled, honest and fair rules govern the sport and players must adhere to them, which protests the sport and its values.
Sportsmanship is the foundation upon which rugby union is built. Camaraderie between teammates and opposition is second to none, across all sports. Observing fair play on and off the pitch and generous and dignified in either victory or defeat.
