Background

 

 

Centurion Rugby Club was established in 1972. We went from being known as the Lyttelton Rugby Club to the Verwoerdburg Rugby Club and in 1992, we became a standing club now known as the Centurion Rugby Club. Our clubhouse is situated in Centurion, just off the n N1 highway.

 

Our area supports 15 primary and 11 high schools. We are surrounded by leading colleges such as Damelin, Centurion Academy College, Centurion Technical College and Soltech. Our area is also support for by the previously disadvantaged development areas such as Diepsloot, Atteridgeville and Tembisa of which several players are represented in our teams.

During 1992 Centurion Rugby Club became a Carlton League Club and on several occasions competed in the semi and finals of the Carlton and Assupol Competition. In 1999 and 2016 Centurion Rugby Club has won this prestigious Carlton Competition and in 2009 and 2010 the inter provincial Assupol Competition. Our U/20 won the Carlton U/20 league and the U/19 School competition during 2017.

Since the club was established several players from our club represented South Africa and various provincial teams.

Currently Centurion Rugby Club has 3 senior rugby teams playing in the Carlton A league and U/21 and U/20 teams participating in in the Carlton Under age competition.

Centurion Rugby Club has a Youth Club of approximately 350 boys participating from the age of 6 - 18 years.

The Centurion Youth Rugby Club was established during 1986 by a number of concerned parents. They gathered at the then Verwoerdburg library and selected " Oom MC Briers" as the first Chairperson. The initial focus was primary school boys. During the early 1990's the need for grew to also include high school boys.

The objective was to improve the skills and technics of players who does not have the opportunity to participate at school level.

Although the initial Youth rugby were started by clubs such as Harlequins (QBR), Pretoria and Adelaars (Naka Bulls)  other clubs such as Atteridgeville, Mamelody, Eersterus and Soshanguwe followed during the mid 1990's
