The Rugby Club was formed in 1945 as a city base for all rugby players and lovers of the game. The Rugby Club was originally the HQ of the NSW Rugby Union and later the ARU and was where Wallaby touring teams were presented their jerseys. It was also where the Australian and New Zealand Rugby Boards agreed to establish the Rugby World Cup and later the Super Rugby and Tri-Nations competitions. Our main bar is named The World Cup Bar in honour of where “Bill was born!”
