The Odyssey XV is an invitational team that is open to all Under 18 rugby players regardless of nationality who wish to enjoy a festival like experience and forge strong bonds with like minded young athletes.

The team was set up to give players the opportunity to showcase and develop their rugby cv’s.

In 2022 we were delighted to have Wessel du Plessis (Bulls U20 Head Coach), and Mark Mapletoft (England U18 backs coach) running the squad. 

Following the incredible success of the Odyssey XV 2022 squad, we are now recruiting for this year’s squad. 

Applications are now open and selection will begin immediately. 

“The squad will bring together players from across the world, and with our top class coaching team, we know the players will have a once in a lifetime experience. It is going to be a fantastic week.”

Simon Lewis, Director of Rugby
