Rugby at Selborne remains the largest sport in terms of numbers of boys that participate and remains the heartbeat of the sporting culture. 

Rugby remains the heartbeat of our brotherhood. From u9 to u13, there are at least 3 teams per age group. Boys participate in the local leagues on Wednesdays whilst Saturdays are reserved for more traditional rivals such as Queens, Dale, Grey Junior and Graeme College.

The ethos of rugby

In keeping with our process driven approach to sport, there is a Selborne way with an emphasis on ensuring that every boy is equipped with the skills to participate in the game. A prop today may be a centre tomorrow. You just never know.
There are a few highlights for our teams with the u12’s having an annual tour to Cape Town to play against rivals that include SACS, Rondebosch, Wynberg and WPPS. The u13B side travels to Graaf Reinet to participate in a festival there whilst the u13A side travels to Durban to test themselves against strong opposition from around the country. This includes DPHS and Glenwood.
Selborne is proud of its rugby tradition and are privileged to count names such as Mark Andrews, David Brits, David Coetzee and Abongile Nonkontwana amongst our alumni.

Little legends

This academy is where it all begins. Coach Adam Robertson runs his skills based academy at Selborne. The academy is open to all boys from Pups to Grade 2. It is a fun way to be introduced to the game, whilst learning the fundamental skills required to play by the time that the boys reach u9.
