​​​​​​​Welcome to the Saints Junior Rip Rugby Spring League!

The purpose of this league is to provide an opportunity for new players to experience the game of Rip Rugby, for school players to play more than one-day tournaments, and for existing club players to extend their season.

It is being delivered in association with the Marist NH Rugby Club, with all games played at the NH Domain (Marist fields).

Entries & Registrations

The Saints Rip Rugby Spring League is first and foremost about children’s participation and fun playing the sport of Rip Rugby. We want to provide a reasonably level playing field for our teams, so we wish to discourage the formation of ‘super teams’ through “loading” a team with elite players.
