The New Caledonia Rugby Committee (French: Comité de Rugby de Nouvelle Calédonie, —or officially: Comité Régional de Rugby de Nouvelle Calédonie) is a committee under the umbrella of the French Rugby Federation which is the governing body for rugby union within New Caledonia.[1][2]

It is a full member of the Federation of Oceania Rugby Unions (FORU), which is the governing body for rugby union in Oceania, but it is not affiliated with the International Rugby Board (IRB) in its own right.[3]

National teams[edit]

The New Caledonia 15-a-side team has competed at the South Pacific Games, winning a silver medal in 1966. More recently, the team has played for the FORU Oceania Cup.[4] New Caledonia fields teams in 7's competitions as well as 15's.[5][6] The national women's 7s team has also competed at the Pacific Games.[7]
