As his Mum it’s been obvious in his overall attitude to training, his training ethics, his attitude to both sport and school life, his selection into CAS and NSW squads… I like to think that attending IRANZ is one of the reasons why these have happened. These Courses build character!


Fua Tauiliili-Pelesasa, Parent (NSW)

Fua’s son Miller attended the Advanced Players Course in 2017, and was selected for various representative sides the following year.

The boys thrived and grew impressively as a team. The tour enabled us to train in a professional environment, play three competitive games and have a lot of fun enjoying the activities New Zealand offers.


Dean Hargreaves, Barker College Coach (NSW)

Barker College attended a Customised Course/Tour Programme in 2018. Barker returned to Sydney to win the CAS Schools Championship dropping only one match during the season.

“The course has been really unbelievable. I walk away from here a much better coach. I’ve benefited much more (from this course) than ever in my wildest dreams I could have hoped for.”


Dick Muir, Coach (Springbok Assistant Coach)

Dick attended the High Performance Coaches Course in 2007, and went on to become the Assistant Coach for the Springbok at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
