Throughout our history, the Club has played a significant role in spreading and strengthening the influence of the game around Australia. Among other things:
- In 1945 our original premises were established as a city base for all lovers of the game.
- It was also where the Australian and New Zealand Rugby Boards met and agreed to establish the Rugby World Cup and later the Super Rugby and Tri-Nations competitions.
Following the change in focus and change of name in 2017 the Club (called The Rugby Club Foundation Limited, to better reflect its new principal object and activities) now has a new vision of “Sharing the Spirit of the Game’’ to encourage the sport of Rugby, and, through this vision, we are increasing our financial support of grassroots Rugby across the country. The Club currently gives financial support to grassroots Rugby programs across NSW.
As a member of The Rugby Club Foundation and an active participant in its events, you continue to play an integral role in supporting grassroots Rugby.
