Men's Seniors & COlts
In recent years, we have competed in the Subbies Division 5/6 competition, which is for clubs with up to 2 senior grades. Including pre-season, it’s a 7 month season 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 fitness and 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 is encouraged to support all grades from the sidelines. It is club tradition that players are cheered on to the field through the supporter tunnel.
Typical kick off times are:
Reserve grade: 2.00pm
First grade 3.15pm
After all home matches the senior team(s) host our opposition at Tantallon Oval for drinks then proceed up the road at the Great Northern Hotel, Chatswood.
All player registration is through “Fusesport” and must be done before the competition rounds commence. The club sets and advises the annual player registration fee payable which is also required at that time.
Injury Insurance is automatically available to all players through the RA Insurance program upon payment of a players registration fee.

Our season is structured into a number of stages to better cater for new players into rugby as well as those with experience as follows:
This is run under the name of SportsFit which is a free program for all sports minded women 17+ probably living on the lower north shore of Sydney keen to build their fitness in preparation for their 2023 sporting season.

The sessions will be run by experienced qualified female sports trainers.
SportsFit is followed by Try Rugby. This is a special program put on by NSW Women’s rugby for us consisting of 4 or 5 sessions each of 45 minutes to introduce and attract the inexperienced to rugby or for the more experienced to provide them with a more advanced skills program. We have our sessions at Tantallon oval presented by NSW Women’s Rugby using our equipment etc.
