About Us

Since its inception in 2011, Balmain Junior Rugby has grown from strength to strength and has become a force to be reckoned with throughout the Inner West.

At Balmain we promote inclusiveness and ensure all our junior players enjoy their Rugby, whilst developing key skills that help establish a strong foundation for life, including ;


Balmain Rugby is a community club that has a strong parental presence, it is this community atmosphere that allows boys and girls to have a unique experience when they pull on the Black and Gold.

Balmain Rugby offers teams across all junior ages, starting at the U6s and developing through to the U15s. Balmain are also a part of the representative pathway to Sydney University through its Junior Player Program, which commences at U10s and offers opportunities for boys and girls to play Representative Rugby.

Our Minis (U6-U9) all play on a Saturday morning with enjoyment and participation a major factor. The players then move to tackle Rugby in U8s-U9s and progress to playing on Sundays in the Sydney Junior Rugby Union Competition, this is a graded competition for our U10s – U15s. Our older age groups use Leichhardt No 2 as our home ground and what better way to spend a Sunday morning watching our boys and girls play Rugby, enjoying a bacon and egg roll on a waterfront oval.
