Japan Tour

Townsville and District Rugby Union

TDRU Japan Tour

Every two years the Townsville and Districts Rugby Union sends an Under 18 Schoolboys team to Japan over the Easter Holidays. The tour runs for 12-14 days and consists of 4-5 games played in regions all over Japan. Many of our senior Brolgas have been on this once in a lifetime trip which has been occurring since 2005. Over the course of the two weeks the players are immersed in the Japanese Culture by billeting with opposing players. This gives an authentic Japanese experience which the boys love. The tour also serves as a gateway for further selection in North Queensland Schoolboys Selection as well as Senior and Under 19 Brolga's Teams. The relationship The Townsville and Dictricts Rugby Union has with the Japan Rugby Union is very strong and we look to continue this tradition for many years to come.

The Next tour will see the team travel to Fukuoka for the first time in 2016. They will play games in the Northern Region of the island Kyushu over the March-April Easter Holidays.

The first training will be held on Sunday 25th of October 9am-11am
