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.”
