AFTER a hugely successful 2023 which saw the Saints take home the title of U13 Sunshine Coast Rugby Champions, the Peregian Saints Junior Rugby Club is on a mission to make history once again by claiming victory as the U14 champions.  

Most team members have returned but the club is looking to bolster its ranks with an additional five to six players to ensure a consistently strong line-up on the field. 

U14s Team Manager Marcus Bawden stated that Rugby Union at the junior level is an electrifying and fun experience with great fitness and teamwork qualities.  

“Beyond the thrill of competition, rugby fosters essential life skills such as sportsmanship, camaraderie, teamwork, coordination, fitness, and mental toughness—qualities that serve players well both on and off the field.” 

Prospective players who are curious about rugby are invited to join the Peregian Saints for a few pre-season training sessions, with pre-season registration just $15. 

“We are excited to embark on this journey toward the U14 championship and invite aspiring athletes to be part of our team,” Coach Mike Scott stated.  

“At Peregian Saints, we prioritise a welcoming and inclusive environment where rugby is not only about winning but also about enjoying the game, developing life skills and forming lifelong friendships.” 

Training sessions take place every Tuesday from 3:45-5:00pm at Coolum High School and every Friday from 3:45-5:00pm at the Rydges Sports Complex in Peregian Springs.
