Rugby

Rugby

“Guts, Glory and Honour … "

Rugby is but a means to the end of education, team work and self-realisation, which is why this magical sport at Midstream College will always be anchored in our core values.

Respect for our rugby heritage, the match officials and our opposition.

Excellence, so we will always strive to be our best.

Loyalty towards our school and team.

Sportsmanship with integrity.

Communio, to see the community come together to support all the teams, by playing an attractive brand of rugby.

We are proud to be involved in traditional derbies against other private schools, and our boys are exposed to the competitive Virseker Trophy competition too. In our short history, the rugby boys have achieved a lot. In 2014, our second year in the competition, both the u/14 and u/15 teams managed to win their respective Blue Bull leagues, and progressed to the semi-finals of the Beeld Trophy for medium schools. In 2015, the u/14, u/16 and 1st teams managed to win their respective Blue Bull leagues. The u/16 and 1st teams progressed to the semi-finals of the Beeld Trophy, and the u/14 team became the first team in the short history of the College to win the Beeld Trophy for medium schools. In 2016 and 2017 all the A-teams progressed to the Blue Bulls semi-finals for big schools. In 2017 the u/14A team won the Blue Bulls final for big schools and progressed to the quarter finals of the Virseker Trophy.

Nine u/19 boys and ten u/16 boys represented the Pretoria Private Schools team (Rooikatte) at the 2018 VKB SA Country Districts tournament where four u/19 and three u/16 players were chosen for the SA Country Districts 15-man teams. Hakeem Rapea played for the Blue Bulls u/18 Academy XV.

2019 will be highlighted by the first team tour to Ireland. We wish the coaches and players all of the best for this great experience.
