2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the official establishment of rugby at Inst. Although there is some evidence that rugby was played at the School even earlier, on 10th February, 1872 we played North of Ireland Football Club (North) at Ormeau in the first recorded match.
The rugby sesquicentenary is a time for everyone with a connection to rugby at Inst - players, coaches, spectators, parents, friends - to get involved.
We’d love to hear about your personal stories about rugby at Inst. We cannot promise to use all of those stories (some of which I am sure will be unpublishable anyway!), but we will certainly enjoy reading them all. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
