Colleagues Rugby Club Athletes Gel Ambassador

Colleagues Rugby Union Football Club

The Club was formed in 1933 and was originally the brainchild of five individuals. Ewen Pizzey, Jim Wishart, Dave Higgins and Harry Kershaw were the original impresarios of the Club.

After the initial administrative processes had been adhered to in complying with NSWRU regulations, Colleagues fielded their first team on the first Saturday in May 1933. This game was played at Lyne Park Rose Bay against Bondi Lifesavers who proved to be too strong for Colleagues defeating the Giants 11-3.

To establish a rugby club during this period would have been a major challenge given that Australia was in the grip of the Great Depression. Despite these challenging economic circumstances, in the following years Colleagues consolidated and expanded and by 1938 were fielding Kentwell, Burke and Whiddon Cup teams. Such was our strength that this translated into our first victory in winning the Club Championship in 1937, and subsequently in 1938 and 39.  Undoubtedly part of this success was due to the unifying social and touring nature of the club. Colleagues embarked on a tour to play Duntroon Military College in Canberra (in 1938) which resulted in a 15-11 victory and further united the club in spirit.
