Eltham Rugby Union football club

ELTHAM RUGBY UNION FOOTBALL CLUB was launched in October 1970 with support from the Local Council, the Victorian Rugby Union (now called Rugby Victoria, RV) and former players of Footscray RUFC.

On field in 2018 the club had two very successful senior teams in the Victorian Premiership competition and a record 8 Junior teams participating in competitions for all ages from Under 6 to Under 18. The club achieved Premierships in 1980, 1986 (U14), 1987 (U12), 1988 (U14), 1990, 1992, 1994, 2000, 2007, 2010, 2014 and the latest in 2018.

Eltham Rugby has a loyal membership, from esteemed Life Members to the families of our youngest junior players. There were 161 registered players in 2018 with a supportive following of family and friends who proudly wear the Wattle emblem.

Volunteers are at the core of the club's operation. Eltham Rugby on and off the field fosters a strong community and family friendly environment. A management committee of elected volunteers run the club and they always welcome motivated individuals to help with any aspect of club operation.
