It's important to submit the following information before planning a Rugby Tour.
To gain approval to tour from Rugby Australia, your club/team/school will need to submit the following:
- Complete and signed Rugby Australia Tour Application From by clicking here.
- This must include a complete Tour Itinerary outlining ALL matches to played (including age grade of touring team (eg: U12's), opposition team/s, dates, and venues.)
Rugby AU will then contact the respective National Union(s) within whose territory such match, tour or series of matches is due to take place and request for 'Permission to tour'.
When approval is received, Rugby AU will notify this approval direct to the club/team/school.
Rugby Australian Touring Terms and Conditions can be found on page 5 of the Rugby Tour Application
Please do not leave this to the last minute, as the process will take some time.
Please note: If approval to tour is not received prior to the arrival in host country, the National Union may not sanction games to be played in their union.
