Get ready to register for rugby
Rugby World Cup starts in September
Check out the Rugby Smart warm ups!

Cheer and applaud this rugby season but keep it sweet on the sidelines.

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 rugby – whether it’s to keep a positive culture humming or help improve one.


Get involved in Applaud!

Schools, clubs and Provincial Unions who commit to APPLAUD are making a firm commitment to ensuring a positive and enjoyable environment for sport.

Getting behind APPLAUD couldn’t be easier.

Register your club or school and you will receive an official APPLAUD resource pack (one per club or school), which includes a range of great resources like posters, stickers, wristbands, referee bib, book and activities for New Zealand primary and intermediate schools.
