The Mpumalanga Rugby Union (MRU) is the official SARU representative in Mpumalanga, and custodian of rugby in this vast and diverse province.
The Steval Pumas (known for playing exciting and competitive rugby) moved to Nelspruit in 2012 and is a well supporterd team with a fast growing fan base.
The Pumas focus is on developing the youth teams and 7’s Rugby:
- Pumas have aligned the “look and feel” of all their teams, and increasingly work with the local schools and youth coaches;
- Pumas development programs are focusing on areas where there is already a rugby playing culture, like the Matsulu Township in Mbombela.
- Pumas focus is on SA’s 7’s Rugby market and are currently developing the Mbombela African 7’s Tournament.
