Rugby union in Nauru is a minor but growing sport. The national team have competed in various international competitions.

Governing body[edit]

The governing body is not currently affiliated to the IRB.


Rugby was introduced into Nauru, by its connection with Australia and the British Empire.

Traditionally, Australian Rules football is the main sport in Nauru, and Rugby league comes second. However, both of these sports have skills which lend themselves to playing rugby union, and it is relatively easy to convert, particularly from the latter.
