Join us for the 2020 season

Join the Shammies for the 2020 rugby season in the top Subbies rugby grade and compete for the big prize, the Kentwell Cup.

Preseason training kicks off on February 4th, with training every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30pm at Camperdown Oval in Sydney’s Inner West.

Our trial games run from March 21st to April 4th, with round one kicking off April 18th.

Why play with us?

Welcome to Petersham Rugby. Founded in 1883, we’re Australia’s original and oldest subbies rugby club.

We’re a famously social bunch, with an epic calendar of events that showcases our penchant for a cold beer and a few tall tales after a tough game.

We also love to win and, with a few Cups and a host of great seasons under our belts, we think the results speak for themselves.

Game Information

Whether you’re a seasoned player or new to the game, we welcome players with all level of experience. The Shammies field 5 senior teams, along with a colts side, so you won’t have any trouble finding the right team for you.

Our first game is April 18th, against old foes Drummoyne.

The Shammies’ first home game is on May 2nd, with this also being our Ladies’ Day and Back to Petersham (Old Boys) event.
