We take pride in every single WPRI graduate that manages to excel at a top level, regardless of which team he ends up playing for. Every success story is a testament to our programme and the influence the Institute had on a player’s journey.

A rugby team can only host 15 players and a squad can’t manage to keep more than 25 ambitious rugby stars happy, so players often need to move on the realise their talents. We have graduates that have represented the Springboks, every South African Super Rugby franchise and even some in Australasia. We also have players succeeding in Europe and on the World Rugby Sevens circuit.

We are proud of every one of them!
