Other big events planned for this year include, but wont be limited to;

  • The Annual Rugby Luncheon, cly in June, a day not to be missed. We rely on the Seniors for financial support, they’ve been great as we establish the Juniors, so getting a seat to this will be just a small way to say thank-you. Its also the best money you’ll spend all year.
  • Trivia night and/ or Karaoke night TB

Club Gear:

Petersham Rugby is known to have the best rugby off field kit going around, so much so we get asked to do other clubs gear…. but we don’t! This will be launched mid-April. Its one of the main sources of fund-raising and with our speaks for itself fund-raising motto of ‘we don’t do chocolates’, please think about making a purchase.


Wests Ashfield – In season 2015 we enjoyed the generosity of Wests Ashfield Leagues, located on the Hume Hwy at Ashfield, our main sponsor for this year. Its a great club the caters for the whole family and is well led by Simon Cook, CEO. He’s a keen rugby lover himself, an assistant coach, we thank him, the board and his team.
We welcome on board Platinum Direct Finance with the support of owner and Director Richard Kew and Dave Lenehan, who is also our first grade coach. When it comes to buying and financing a vehicle, there are none better. These guys are helping us keep kids on the paddock with their generous support, so please don’t hesitate to ask your team mange for more information.
Petersham has a long and proud association with PhysioGym, owned by Matt Squires. They have a great facility and provide a lot of valuable support to the club, its players and extended family.
