What is IMS Rugby Super Series?

IMS Rugby Super Series is a brand new programme launched for 2017! For the first time in IMS history, our very best Rugby talent will come together to form four unstoppable squads battling it out to become the IMS Super Series Champions! 

With exhibition games taking place under floodlights on our world class 1st XV pitch, and food, drink and entertainment available,  it promises to be an unforgettable event!

 

How does it work?

IMS Rugby teams will be affiliated to a Super Series Squad for the year that they will represent.  Affiliations to Super Series squads are based on their semester one performances in the IMS league.

Players from IMS teams will then trial for their affiliated Super Series squad and begin training on a weekly basis. All Super Series coaches will be managed centrally by the IMS Superseries programme managers.
