​Rugby has an incredible power to inspire and bring people together.  Tawa Rugby Football Club (TRFC) are proud of the impact that we have built over the years and the opportunities created on and off the field making a difference to our supporters, players and their families.

2018 was no different with successes and achievements that will deliver far-reaching benefits for Wellington Rugby and beyond.  In particularly it was a good year for coaches and players with a record number making representative teams, but there is no room for complacency.

Preparation is well on the way for the 2019 season. There is a massive amount of continued effort to ensure we do our part in player welfare, health, business outcomes and development.  Our priority continues to be enhancing player development, establishing progression pathways and promoting them to higher honours.

As a result Tawa have gone big securing an experienced international team of Steve So’oialo (Rugby Development Officer), Dion Waller (Director of Rugby) and Rodney So’oialo (Premier Coach) who will also be focusing a lot on the colts this year. Adding to this powerhouse are the return of former premier players and 2018 coaches Vice Saletele and Douglas Fletcher.   Damian Rapira-Davies will also be returning to the role of premier backs coach.

Training for keen players start 5.00am Tuesdays and Thursday at Tawa Rugby Football Club.  

Preseason will start 6.00pm Tuesday 8 January 2018 at Lyndhurst Park

If you are interested or have any questions about playing for Tawa Rugby Football Club you can contact Steve So'oialo on 027 267 0606.

The Tawa Rugby Football Club coaching and management line up for 2019.
