Join us for the 2021 season

Join the Shammies for the 2021 rugby season in the top Subbies rugby grade and compete for the big prize, the Kentwell Cup.

Training is held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:45pm at Camperdown Oval in Sydney’s Inner West. New players welcome. 

Round 1 kicks off April 17th, with our first home game April 24th.

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, so you won’t have any trouble finding the right team for you.

Our first game is on April 17th, 2021.
