Our Club

About

The Owls aim to inspire a strong community club built on the values of iSHARE: Inclusive, Supportive, Honesty, Accountable, Respectful and Enjoyment.
We welcome players from a diverse range of backgrounds. The Owls regularly attract school leavers, local, interstate and international university students, young professionals, tradesman and public servants. We also have strong links to a number of interstate and overseas clubs which make us a truly multicultural club. We strive to incorporate the diverse cultures of our players within our own values.

Our History

The Owls also have a rich family history with a number of 3rd generation players currently donning the Owls colours. The club has an ongoing commitment to inspire younger generations to experience rugby as part of the Owls family. With one of the biggest player bases in Canberra, the Owls aim to support the growth and development of our players, on and off the field.
We assist players, through our strong network of sponsors, old boys/girls and community partners, to help connect them with local employers, businesses and of course our affiliated universities and tertiary institutions (ANU, UC and CIT). We also link new players up with fellow players to assist in finding accommodation. We can also offer players access to bursaries and hardship scholarship through a confidential and supportive application process.

Our History

The University-Norths Rugby club has a short history of 22 years; however, its origins span from the amalgamation of 3 historical clubs each with a long and colourful history. The Uni-Norths club in its current format was established in 2001 when the Northern Suburbs club merged with the Universities Rugby club – which itself was formed from a merger in 1998 between the Australian National University Club and the University of Canberra Club.

These 3 clubs have collectively achieved a total of 8 Men’s Premier First Grade Championships (John I Dent Cups), with Norths accounting for 7 titles and ANU accounting for 1. Each club has also achieved multiple Premierships in lower divisions since their respective establishment, with both Norths and ANU being a notable Foundation members of ACT Rugby back in 1938
