MRP (Modified Rugby Program)

The MRP aims to move boys and girls with learning and perceptual disabilities off the sidelines and into the main game. The program encourages boys and girls to play rugby as part of their local junior rugby club community.

MRP is a modified form of touch-only rugby, developed by GingerCloud Foundation, where each boy and girl with a learning and perceptual disability has their own club Player Mentor on the field supporting them. Through the program, players experience the thrill of playing rugby, and mentors learn how great assisting can be.

Contact GingerCloud to find out more information and to register with the Bullsharks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to Register Online?
Yes – registration via Rugby Xplorer is a requirement.  All players must be registered before they can participate in training or collect their uniform. Players are not permitted to train if they have not registered with the club.  

How long will registration be available?
Player registration should be completed by 27 February.  Managing squad size is a challenge and the availability to join the club is managed by a first-come-first-served basis.  All returning players are encouraged to register early, while we will do our best, a spot is not guaranteed. 

I’m having difficulties registering, what do I do?
You can check out the step-by-step guide here first. If that doesn’t help, please email the Club Registrar. 

When and where do we collect the uniforms?
Registration fees include uniform (training shirt and shorts).  Socks and hats can be purchased from the club.

What does my child need for training and playing?
Players need shoes and their uniform. Mouthguards are required for U8+.  Other safety items like headgear are optional (but encouraged). We recommend purchasing before the start of the season so you are not running around at the last minute and are ready to train.
