Maurice Trapp at the Birley Centre
Maurice Trapp, Old Eastbournian and now President of New Zealand Rugby,
spoke to an audience of pupils, OEs, parents and staff at the Birley Centre.
Maurice gave an entertaining and inspiring talk describing his journey from
being captain of the 1st XV at Eastbourne during his time in the
College between 1962 and 1967, to becoming one of the most well-known rugby
personalities in New Zealand and internationally. The talk was followed by a
drinks reception and a chance for the attendees to ask questions. Maurice’s
talk inspired all attendees and offered insights into coaching techniques,
leadership skills and his rugby philosophy.
