Old Boys' Rugby Club
The Sydney Grammar Old Boys' Rugby Club was established in the beginning of 2011 and also entered the New South Wales Suburban Rugby Competition that same year.
In its short existence, the Club has already won a premiership proudly claiming the Meldrum Cup in the 2012 season. The Club aims to provide schoolboys of the past the opportunity to continue playing competitive rugby in the traditional black and gold. With rugby being such a physically and emotionally demanding sport, it is important that teams have something to play for and more importantly, play alongside others who share those same passions. The Old Boys' Rugby Club provides an environment for this to occur as well as allowing schoolboys of the past to remain connected with the Grammar Community.
Sydney Grammar Rugby has a rich history behind it. The Great Public Schools (GPS) association was formed in 1892 and Sydney Grammar School joined the organisation that year. Nine different schools make up the GPS and contest various sporting events among themselves. The Rugby Union competition commenced in 1892 and Sydney Grammar has been a part of it ever since. The Old Boys' Rugby Club continues to have a close association with the School and its rugby program.
The Club's home ground is Reg Bartley Oval at Rushcutters Bay. Located on the waterfront and recently re-developed, it is a premier location for a rugby club. The oval is still used by the School and many of the boys feel right at home as they would have played on it in the past.
The Club encourages Old Boys and current schoolboys, their friends and family to get involved with us in one way or another. With ongoing support, the Club will grow to be an even greater organisation than it is now.
