SACS’ proud rugby history dates back to the 1800s when Bishops and SACS engaged in their first ‘battles’ at Newlands – the home of South African Rugby. Throughout the years, these encounters have produced warriors such as Dr Cecil Moss, Frank Mellish, Peter Kirsten, Percy Montgomery,  Paul Delport, and Kyle Brown. These gentlemen’s skills developed from the firm foundations of SACS Rugby and all went on to represent their country as Springboks.

180 years on, rugby continues to be enormously popular at our school, with as many as 24 league teams playing the game with SACS spirit each Saturday. The school motto, “Spectemur Agendo”, “Let us be judged by our actions”, motivates the teams to give of their very best when they pull on the famous hooped jersey.
