2021 Tour Team

Every year we gather and invite all our school year 8 players to go on a rugby tour. This can be the last junior year for a lot of our players before they head off next year to college organised teams. This tour is designed to give them a final fantastic memory of being at the club and playing with friends.

This Year

This year the team will be heading to Queenstown during the last week of school on Wednesday the 23rd September returning on Tuesday the 28th. We will be looking to play a match or two against local rugby clubs for both the rugby and rip teams.


The tour is for Northcote players who are in year 8 at school for 2021. If you are interested in being part of our tour, please contact us via the people listed at the bottom of this page.

If you wish to stay informed about the happenings of the tour team, its events and efforts you can join our newsletter where we will be promoting what we are doing and when we are looking for help.

Next Event

On Sunday, January 24th at 1 pm we are looking to have a BBQ and a game of Rip Rugby for all the tour members. This will be a chance to meet others in the group as well as talk to the committee members and ask any questions you may have.

We also plan to have our 75ft water slide set up for the kids to test out their speed skills.
