Southland Stags

Southland's premier rugby team is the SIT Zero Fees Southland Stags, which is based at Rugby Park Stadium in Invercargill as part of Rugby Southland.

SIT Zero Fees Southland co-captain James Wilson capped an emotional homecoming by being named the Stags player of the year at the 2018 end-of-season awards. Check a video clip of the presentation at Rugby Southland's official website.

In August 2017 a new Stags song and music video - The Southern Dream by New Zealand singer and songwriter Jason Kerrison - was released. The video features a number of well-known Southlanders.
