Want to play for University in 2017?

The University of Queensland Rugby Football Club is one of the oldest and most successful rugby clubs in Queensland. In 2016 the club won its seventh consecutive Doughty Shield (club championship across all grades).

You don’t need to be a University student to join the UQ Rugby Club.

Recent Wallaby representatives from our club include Wallaby captain James Horwill, hooker James Hanson, fly half Mike Harris and outside backs Tevita Kuridrani & Luke Morahan.Mike and Jono

However, you don’t have to be warming the bench for the Reds if you want to play for us.

Last year we had seven grades (mens) teams, four colts (U19) teams and a women’s team, four of which taking home premierships and all but one playing in finals.

We believe as a club that everyone contributes to our success whether it is their goal to one day represent their country or just to enjoy the more social side of rugby.

We have regular club events for all our players and volunteers, including club nights to help unwind after a hard-fought battle on the field. We also have a touring culture having recently toured the USA defeating both the University of California and University of Texas.

Pre-season training commences on Tuesday, January 10th 2017 at 6:30pm, and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30pm throughout the season.


We are situated at the beautiful University of Queensland overlooking the athletics track (field 5A) on Sir William Macgregor Drive.

We have three rugby ovals; our fields are the most well-maintained in club rugby.


New players are more than welcome at our club.

Each season we attract players from across the globe, regional Queensland and Australia.

If you are coming to the club from overseas, outside of Queensland or from another Brisbane competition you need to complete a clearance form and have it signed by your current union.
