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.
