At Tiger Rugby we believe in sport as a vehicle to change lives.
We believe we have the right culture and strategy.
True success is attainable for every one of us, whether it be in elite play or living life to the fullest. #PureRugby
Tiger Rugby started as a touring team in 2007, with the intention of exposing young, up and coming players to the highest level of competition on the international stage. Over the years, we noticed that our approach to the game struck a transcending chord regardless of what language was being spoken. Tiger players have always been selected as much by who they are as people, as well as their ability to play on the field. Tiger intends to continue to develop players who are true ambassadors for the game.
