Centurions Rugby Football Club
The Centurions Rugby Football Club has been in Wellington for about 70 years. Its membership of almost 300 is made up of people who love the game of rugby union and who have excelled as players, referees, coaches or administrators. This membership represents a huge resource of rugby experience and talent which can be used by rugby clubs and secondary schools in the Wellington Rugby Football Union area. The Centurions club has always been active in the Wellington rugby scene but since the rise of professional rugby its attention has been increasingly focused on young players between 14 and 19 years old. The club aims to boost enthusiasm among young players of all standards, including the ones who are keen on the game but who do not make the top youth teams and are therefore in danger of losing enthusiasm and even quitting the game. The Club is probably best known for its games against School First XV's and also for its Wellington Centurions Secondary Schools Team.
