Beyond the
playing days

We appreciate the transition from professional rugby brings its own set of challenges, so we have established ‘The Rugby Club’ to connect a thriving network of retired professional NZ rugby players. The Rugby Club offers members support to help smooth their transition from professional rugby to retirement, as well as access to networks, preferential services and other opportunities. Perhaps most importantly, The Rugby Club allows players to maintain that valuable sense of team spirit and camaraderie after retiring from rugby.
