None of us is as strong as all of us. - Kitch Christie

Rugby is synonymous with the North-West University, and excellence on the rugby field even more so. The NWU is a former Varsity Cup champion and one of the most consistent performers in the competition. The campus in Potchefstroom boasts the second highest number of rugby teams in South Africa, and has a thriving partnership with the Leopards Rugby Union. The University has produced vast numbers of provincial rugby players and continues to do so without respite, while also contributing players, coaches and specialist staff to the country’s national teams.
