LANE COVE RUGBY
Lane Cove Rugby Union Football Club was founded in 1949 and participates in the New South Wales Suburban Rugby Union (Subbies) competition. We offer both men’s colts and senior rugby in the Subbies competition as well as women’s 7’s rugby all structured into divisions according to standard . We play our home matches at Tantallon Oval, Lane Cove.
On field the club has enjoyed significant success over the years as well as some famous Wallabies and off field is known for the enjoyment of the rugby played and the lasting friendships made. The club is also in an exciting rebuilding phase following the impact of covid, with new facilities at Tantallon Oval and the establishment of a women’s rugby group.
Our club achieved multiple 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 recent years.
