Rugby is a hugely popular sport in the Autumn Term at The Downs Malvern. We field 1st and 2nd XVs involving boys from Years 7 and 8, Colts A and B (both 12-a-side) in Years 5 and 6, and also teams at U9 and U8 level.

Teams play up to two competitive matches each week and our coaching staff have many years' experience in Prep school sport between them. The focus is to get the very best out of our boys physically, whilst promoting an enduring passion and love for the game.

Our senior and Colts boys, in addition to games against other Prep schools, play a highly competitive inter-house tournament during the season.

We nominate boys annually for both U12 and U13 Worcestershire County trials and have gained much success.

At the end of each season, we award Colours (Seniors) and Half-Colours (Seniors and Colts) to those who have excelled whilst representing their School.
