Barbarians Rugby Melbourne (Northern RUFC)

The Barbarians are a group of players from various clubs in Melbourne that have come together to celebrate rugby and mateship.

We align ourselves to charities and raise money through our love of Rugby. Based out of Northern RUFC we pride ourselves in supporting the growth of rugby at all levels and corridors of Victoria.

The BaaBaas welcome anyone wanting to play and support all things great about the game - flair, courage, spirit and passion.



Box Hill Rugby Union Football Club field a team for players who are "young at heart" in the VRU masters’ grade competition. We get together every Thursday night throughout the year from 6.30pm for an optional game of touch under lights.

New members to the Masters squad are very welcome. If you are over 35, or feel over 35, and are interested in playing in the Masters competition or simply want to play a game of touch on a Thursday night, please contact us or just turn up at the clubrooms. You can be assured of a warm welcome.

Kiwi Hawthorn RUFC

Kiwi Hawthorn Rugby Union Football Club Inc. is the only rugby club that is a combination of two of the great powerhouses of world rugby: New Zealand and Australia.

New Zealand servicemen formed the Kiwi Club in 1923, while the Old Scotch Rugby Club was started in the 1930s by old boys of the school. Old Scotch later became known as the Hawthorn Rugby Club and merged with the Kiwi Club in 1987 to become the Kiwi Hawthorn Rugby Club. Our club is a proud celebration of the close ties that have long existed between Australia and New Zealand. We warmly welcome all nationalities that now make up the multicultural world rugby community.

Maroondah Misfits RUFC

Based in the foothills of the Dandenongs, Maroondah RUFC fields both a senior and veterans (masters) team. The club boasts a strong rugby history in the north eastern suburbs of Melbourne with one of the best grounds and locations in the state.

Our masters team is a bunch of grate mates who get up to mischief (why we call ourselves the Misfits), who love playing rugby and being apart of a fantastic community. If you are based in the north eastern suburbs are interested in joining a great rugby club we look forward to hearing from you.

Melbourne Chargers RUFC

The Melbourne Chargers is Melbourne's gay and inclusive rugby team. The club formed in 2009 with the purpose of creating a rugby team where new players could learn the game in an accepting environment and players who had left the sport because of their sexuality could play openly.

We aim to contribute to the promotion and development of the sport of Rugby Union in Victoria and to provide a new and diverse social opportunity for same-sex attracted people.

Melbourne RUFC

The Unicorns’ Masters team, the ‘Gerries’, welcome players who might be returning to the game after a bit of a lay-off; those who might be new to the game but have always fancied giving it a go; and those who’ve decided that the days of playing grade are now behind them. Many of the players are parents of Junior players – who love watching Dad get smashed around on a Saturday afternoon. Enjoyment of the game and each other’s company is the foundation stone of the ‘Gerrie’s’ ethos. They still like winning as well.

Powerhouse RUFC (The Cardies)

Power House masters are affectionately known as the 'Cardies'. This refers to their after games tradition of wearing eye catching cardigans. The 'Cardies' are associated with the Power House RUFC based at Albert Park and Power House Junior RUFC based in Newport, Melbourne.

We formed in 2013 and are arguably Australia's most successful over 35s side, having won multiple Australian Masters Games and back to back champions of Victorian Rugby Union Masters Grand Final day.

The Cardies are renowned for having a powerful forward pack, and an elegant back line. They play hard, competitive rugby but emphasise the social spirit of over 35s Rugby.

Whilst the Cardies have had a lot of success they play the game for the game itself. Players are welcome from all parts of Melbourne and Australia to be part of a rich tradition of over 35s rugby success. Join our club if you are passionate about rugby, family orientated and humble.
