KULTURE'S AFFILIATION WITH THE AUSTRALIAN RUGBY UNION

  • Kulture is formally recognised as an Entity Team under the Australian Rugby Union.  What does this mean?  
  • For insurance purposes, it means all registered Kulture participants (Players, Coaches, Officials) are covered under the Rugby Australia insurance plan via Gow Gates for your benefit and risk protection.
  • All Clubs affiliated with Rugby Australia and/or the various Member Unions are automatically covered under the plan annually. 
  • Participation in the plan is compulsory for all Clubs competing in competitions managed by Rugby Australia and/or Member Unions, and a National Participant Insurance Levy is payable by participants upon registration.
  • Whilst the plan provides basic levels of cover for players and others participating in Rugby, it is not all-encompassing (this is necessary to keep the cost of insurance affordable for players) and does not seek to replace the need for private health and other insurances.
  • Kulture encourages all players and officials to take out their own private health insurance, life insurance and ‘Top Up’ coverage over and above the coverage provided under this plan.
  • For one-off Events ie Competitions, Tournaments as well as Overseas Tours, Kulture must apply to Rugby Australia to have these events sanctioned.
