A BRIEF HISTORY
The Southland Rugby was formed in 1887 and from the deadening depths of player revolt in 1908, to the heady heights of Ranfurly Shield success in the years surrounding Worlds War 2, Southland Rugby has had more than its fair share of colourful moments.
For more than 110 years, rugby has been the hub of sporting activity in Southland occupying the leisure hours of thousands. Those years have not been without incident; humour, controversy, drama and delight, are all part of the Southland story. Sadly Southland rugby has gone through some tough times of late with the 90's being a period where Southland spent time going between the 1st and 2nd Division. The appointment of former All Black Leicester Rutledge to the NPC coaching position has raised the hopes of the passionate Southland rugby public, that the times ahead may be better for this rugby mad province.
