BGS Rugby


Brighton Grammar has a rich and proud rugby history, having competing 1st Division of the Victorian Schools’ Rugby Union for over 50 years. The rugby programme is one of the main winter sports elected by the boys, where teams are fielded from Year 7 – Year 12.

Since the arrival of the Melbourne Rebels, Rugby at Brighton Grammar (and across Victoria) has benefitted from an influx of players and coaches which has significantly improved the level of rugby, as well as its exposure. Brighton Grammar has had numerous state representatives, as well as age-group international representatives over the years, with the number of players being recognised at interschool and interstate level steadily increasing.

Tradition and ritual plays a huge role within Rugby at the school, with a 1st XV cap being one of the most sought after pieces of regalia – boys are awarded their cap for their “run-on” start in the 1st XV.
