Herald Rugby: Two worlds of school rugby - Sport - NZ Herald Videos

Herald Rugby: Two worlds of school rugby - Sport - NZ Herald Videos | Schools Sport | Scoop.it
Schoolboy rugby in Auckland has lost any notion of egalitarianism and the world famous 1A competition is now divided along financial lines.
Dean Roulston's insight:

Interesting discussion between the lines from the author of this series. Doesn't pull any punches in accusing the schools involved of some ethically questionable practices. This is a great series to debate ethically, but the more I think about it, it only really affects those schools and students with aspirations to play 1st XV rugby. I'm sure it happens in other sports to a lesser degree as well, but there are around 80 secondary schools in Auckland, I would suggest that 60+ of them aren't worried about or affected by what the MAGS, St Kents of this world are up to. 

 

Makes it all that more satisfying when you beat them at something as well!!

cgibbons's comment, August 2, 2013 4:51 AM
He hammers the schools but not once questions college sport who make the rules until he questions the process around supposed recruitment and the need for it to be transparent- on whic he makes a good point. The series has good in terms of starting debate but overall it's been surface journalism- it wasn't investigative in nature- really an opinion piece.
