Warringah Rugby Club

Consisting of four grades, a strong Colts program and an outstanding, high-achieving Women’s 15 side we are a thriving and engaged Rugby Club. Over the years our Club has been proudly and prominently represented at both national and international level. We believe that our Sponsors, Supporters and Players are our finest assets. They are characterised by qualities such as loyalty, commitment and generosity which make the strong foundation of our ‘family’. It’s this “family” that you’ll see and hear down at Rat Park on a Saturday cheering on every game and every grade, socialising afterwards in victory and in defeat. It’s this “family” that comes rain, hail or shine which makes things down here all the more special. Our side lines are laced with the finest of physicians and management and our grand stand filled with the most passionate of supporters. We’re a rugby club whose history spans more than 50 years and has shaped and defined the core of who we are. We are rich in culture, passion, great sportsmanship and of course a deep love for the game of Rugby. We're known as “The Rats” and the name holds significant value for us. After experiencing several difficult years with many humiliating defeats the players were reminded by Doug Leslie Snr - a Rat of Tobruk - that to give up in the face of adversity is never an option. The tradition of the Rats of Tobruk, of bonding together and making commitments in the true spirit of mateship should always be remembered. From that time on the Club became known as the Green Rats and our long held friendship with the Rats of Tobruk Veterans Association and their legacy is honoured by a memorial on the hill at the southern end of ‘Rat Park’.
