Our Union

Welcome to the website of the Buller Rugby Union. The Buller Rugby Union is responsible for providing rugby activities to players in the North West of the South Island. We provide Club rugby from Under 5 level right up to Senior Mens rugby and we also have a number of provincial representative teams.

We hold many tournaments involving both clubs and schools throughout the year. The Buller Union is comprised of Karamea RFC, Ngakawau RFC, Old Boys RFC, Reefton RFC, Westport RFC, White Star RFC,  and Buller Maori Rugby. We also provide rugby development to the many secondary and primary schools throughout the vast area of the Buller region.

The Buller Union is affiliated to the NZR and is one of six Unions who make up the Crusaders franchise (along with Tasman, West Coast, South Canterbury, Mid Canterbury and Canterbury). The Buller Senior Team play in New Zealands Heartland Championship and have been a strong performer in this competition over the past few years.
