about Titans Rugby

Titans Rugby as the ultimate choice for rugby development




The Titans Rugby initiative is to simply provide a platform for those players that are not quite making provincial or selection rugby, to put their best foot forward. To assist in the development of these players to their best of their ability and provide coaching and insight at such a level to which they are trying to rise to.


In alignment with this, Titans Rugby ensures proper core values are instilled into Titans Rugby Players, teaching such life values as public awareness, and social responsibility by supporting various aids and charities and creating awareness for these causes. While at the same time ensuring that the players keep a very high level of integrity and good manners.


A Titans Rugby initiative is to further grow the exposure of previously disadvantaged player groups and to ensure that these type of players have access to top schooling institutes and are supported through their schooling journeys. Part of the Titans Rugby affiliation program is to ensure all our players have access to these institutes and to offer advice and best possible guidance where applicable. A Titans Rugby Player is more than just rugby, he is a well-rounded young man that believes a solid education is the key foundation to a successful life.
