Aluminium Rugby Posts - proudly made by the Perennial team in New Zealand

Perennial's Aluminium Rugby Posts are made locally, in our Christchurch factory. Engineered approved, these aluminium posts are safer than steel or timber posts.

Perennial's Rugby Posts are available with either a Sleeve Base or a Hinge Base. The posts look the same to the eye, however the installation is different, also making erecting and taking down the posts different too. Scroll down to find out the differences:

"Geoff and the team at Perennial were a pleasure to deal with. Our posts are up, the kids are excited and they look fantastic. The combo posts have transformed our playground into a 'real' sports field overnight."
