  • 3 year contract at RC Vannes in France

I joined Rugby Travel Academy in the hopes of pursuing my dream rugby career further than just Highschool Rugby. With blood, sweat, and hard work I gave the RTA my best statistics to market me abroad, now I have got an opportunity at Rugby club Vannes and I strive to become the best version of myself for the time being. All thanks to RTA I have maximised my skills, abilities and fitness to the point where I feel confident in my own shoes to do what is being asked of me as a tighthead prop. – Eduan Roux

De- Andre Du Preez

  • 2021 RTA Student
  • 2 Year contract at Aurillac Rugby Club in France

It has been my long-held dream to play rugby on a professional level.  At first I thought that my dreams were completely destroyed because of the fact that the U/18 Craven Week didnt take place due to the Covid Pandemic.  Luckily I was invited by the Rugby Travel Acadamy to be part of their team and they made my dreams come true.

I was given the opportunity to sign a two-year contract with a French club.

I believe RTA has opened doors for me which I did not think would ever have been possible. 

I am truly honored to be a part of RTA and I will always hold their name high. 

My moto is Opportunities are build on Dreams.  Never stop dreaming. – De-Andre Du Preez
