Club History

Welcome to Northlakes Junior Rugby Club

Northlakes United Rugby Club is one of the founding rugby clubs on the Central Coast and has been running for over 40 years. The club was first established in 1975 & was formally called the “Wyong Wallabies”. In 1982 the club moved to Slade Park, Budgewoi and became “Northlakes United Rugby Club”.

In 2015 our club was only able to enter one under 7’s team in the Central Coast competition however 2016 saw our juniors grow to two under 7’s and two under 8’s teams, and even more growth again in 2017 with four under 7’s teams, two under 8’s teams and 1 under 9’s team. We topped it again in 2018 with four under 7’s teams, two under 8’s teams and 1 under 9’s team, 1 under 10’s team and 1 under 12’s team. 

Our club had an amazing amount of positive feedback and support from parents, players, Central Coast Junior Rugby and even higher to State and Australian levels. Hence the wonderful opportunities given to our junior players.

In 2016, 2017 and 2018, players represented our club as they participated in the curtain raiser and Guard of Honour for the NSW Waratahs vs Rebels match as well as the Guard of Honour for the Australian Wallabies vs England Test Match. Our junior girls joined the Australian Women’s 7’s Olympic Gold medallists as they ran out onto the oval and sang the National Anthem at the Central Coast Rugby 7’s Tournament.

In 2019 we hope to grow our club even further and enter more age divisions in the Central Coast Junior Rugby Union competition.

Our club is focused on junior development and we aim to improve skills, technique and help players to better understand the sport, whilst making it an enjoyable experience.

Our club prides itself on giving players the best training, support and opportunities that we can whilst maintaining a family friendly atmosphere and we hope you can join us for our 2019 season.
