Event info

Come and watch as over 15 teams and 200 male and female local and visiting students compete in an action-packed international sports tournament.

From the 23 September to 3 October 2011, seven-a-side rugby teams from six French high-schools located around the world (that are part of the Agency for French Education abroad) will travel to New Zealand to take part in the Young Rugby Reporters project. During their stay in Aotearoa, visiting students from Tunisia, the United States, Hong Kong, Spain, New Caledonia and Australia will be hosted by students from Scots College and Queen Margaret College.

The focal point of the project is a large one-day tournament to be held on the grounds of Scots College from 9.00am to 4.00pm on Thursday 29 September. Members of the public are free to attend. In this competition, the 62 visiting students will compete in friendly seven-a-side matches against pupils from Scots College and Queen Margaret College.

Players from each of the six teams will also be selected to form a 15-a-side team to compete against their hosts at 9.30am on Friday 30 September. Wellingtonians and other visitors to the city are free to come and support whichever team they choose!
