Welcome to all Small Blacks supporters

A positive environment for everyone to enjoy rugby is at the heart of APPLAUD; a New Zealand Rugby initiative to encourage supporters to be good sports at schools and clubs and also to stamp out anti-social side-line behaviour. APPLAUD is for everyone involved in Small Blacks Rugby – whether it’s to keep a positive culture humming or help improve one.

Applaud and You

Schools and clubs who commit to APPLAUD are making a firm commitment to ensuring a positive and enjoyable environment for sport. And getting behind APPLAUD couldn’t be easier.
