Lane Cove Rugby Union Football Club was founded in 1949 and participates in the New South Wales Suburban Rugby Union (Subbies) competition. We play our home matches at Tantallon Oval, Lane Cove. 

Our club achieved multiples successes in the Sydney Rugby competition through the 1950s and 1960s, and was competitive in Division One Sub-Districts into the 1980s. In recent years, our club has fielded two senior grades and a colts team in the Subbies Division 5/6 and Radford Cup competitions, winning the Radford Cup and Noice Cup in 2016 and 2017 respectively. 




In recent years, we have competed in the Subbies Division 5/6 competition, which is for clubs with up to 2 senior grades.  Including preseason, it's a 7-month commitment with a few bye rounds mixed in to let you catch up on social commitments.

Typical dates are:

Preseason: Mid-February to Easter Weekend

Season: April to late August

Finals: Early September




Our coaching team organises two training sessions per week. Tuesdays are largely skills-based while there is a strong emphasis on game plans and team runs on Thursdays. We'll get the BBQ and TV out by the sheds whenever the footy is on after training.

We appreciate that work, education or family commitments can take priority on training nights. We won't hold it against you on the Saturday. Just learn our calls, stick to the game plan and give it your all for the club. 

Tuesdays & Thursdays: 7 to 8.30pm




All matches are played on Saturdays during the season. First Grade will always be scheduled for a 3.15pm kick off with Colts and Reserves playing the curtain raisers.


Everyone at the club is encouraged to support all grades from the sidelines. It is club tradition that players are cheered onto the field through the supporter tunnel.

Typical kick off times are:

Colts: 12.45pm

Reserve Grade: 2.00pm

First Grade: 3.15pm

After all home matches we hold a boat race against our opposition at Tantallon Oval before hosting them just up the road at the Great Northern Hotel, Chatswood.




All training sessions and home matches are held at the award-winning Tantallon Oval, the home of Lane Cove Rugby since 1949.
