OD Rugby Club

Enjoy some vintage Bishops Rugby from 1986. As quoted in a speech by former principal, Grant Nupen -"Bishops Rugby is a fundamental ingredient which makes up our magical recipe, being Bishops education"

Basil Bey also quoted in the Bishops Magazine that former principal, Mr Anthony Mallett recognized that sport is as equally as important as academics.

Merry Christmas from the Old Diocesan's Rugby Football Club.

We look forward to a positive, fun and competitive 2021 taking the field against other old boy unions for the sake of Rugby, camaraderie and gees!!
