Rugby is the biggest winter sporting code at Jeppe. It is played predominantly in the second term, with some matches also taking place in the first and third terms.
Jeppe fields up to 21 teams in regular interschool matches and the policy is that every team will play a match every week during the season. Rugby fixtures run parallel to hockey and we play against all the boys schools in Gauteng as well as part of an annual winter sports exchange with Durban’s Westville Boys’ High School.
The first team plays in one of the Easter Rugby Festivals and also at the Grey High School Festival in Port Elizabeth. The under-16, under-15 an under-14 A teams also play at Grey High and attend a festival every year. Jeppe hosts a national under-16 festival.
There is an emphasis on quality coaching for all the teams. Every age group has a teacher in charge. The first team is assisted by specialist consultants from the Golden Lions Rugby Union.
