The Great Rugby Robbery

It’s time for Rugby World Cup!

The Great Rugby Robbery is the must-see show for 2011.

Written by Greg Cooper especially for this tour, the play introduces Rugby World Cup and some of its history. Riana – a young rugby hopeful – is accidentally entangled in the evil plot of some fed-up former French rugby players (from the RWC 1987 Final) to sabotage the RWC 2011 Final. Ooh la la! Can Riana save the Webb Ellis Cup from the French? Can she help the All Blacks win Rugby World Cup 2011? Can she do both before the final whistle of this 60 minute pantomime?

Performed in 2011 by Shayne Forrest, Aimee Pollard and Rutene Spooner
Written and directed by Greg Cooper

We thought the actors were stunning, skilled and very approachable. Loved the interaction with the school – super behaviour management techniques! Your resources are fabulous – excellent that they link to the curriculum and are at different levels. Greg Cooper wrote a super play! The students at different levels/age understood and enjoyed it (so did the teachers!!) It was fun, entertaining and educational.
