Touch Rugby

Touch Rugby is the growth summer sport in New Zealand and this is reflected in the increased participation of players at NPBHS.

The school currently has a 1st VI touch team that competes annually in national touch playoffs and has been Taranaki’s top boys’ school team for touch for the last number of years. Over 10 school teams compete yearly in the New Plymouth city-wide touch competition.  We are keen to increase this to meet the rising demand for serious competition.
