Rugby is a popular sport at Upper Hutt College. We field several boys' teams each year and usually field a girls' team as well. Matches are played each Saturday during the season under the auspices of College Sport Wellington. We also have annual traditional matches with Heretaunga College and host a visiting team from overseas most years. In 2009, we hosted two teams from Bangor Grammar located near Belfast in Northern Ireland. In 2011 we had a visit from Stanbridge Earls School.
In 2012, we have a first fifteen, second fifteen, an under 65 kg, and under 55kg and an under 15 years team. The first fifteen had a most successful year in the top Wellington division in 2010 and also was the top performing Co-ed College in Wellington.
