Where Ever You May Be
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 info will appear here once the season resumes.
