Welcome to the University of WA Rugby Club
GET ON BOARD SEASON 2014: ‘uni rugby: moving forward’
UWA Rugby Club is renowned throughout Perth for its expansive style of rugby and social life. This year the Club offers six men’s XVs: Premier and Reserve Grade, Championship A (3rd Grade), Championship B (4th Grade) and Championship C (5th Grade) teams, as well as an U/19 Colts team.
UWA GO DOWN TO NEDLANDS

1st Grade went down 20-41 to strong Nedlands performance. 2nd Grade came back from 3-29 after a poor first half to score 21 unanswered ppoints and put themselves in a position to win, going down 24-29 and picking up a bonus point for their efforts. 3rd Grade defeated an understrength San Suburbs team 52-3 whilst 4th Grade's opponents have withdrawn from the competition and thus we won 25-0 on forfeit.
Colts and 5th Grade again played trial games and commence their season in a few weeks time.
Next Games - come down to Pat O'Hara field in Bayswater and support the team

UWA's BURTON AND SCOBLE IN 2014 AUST U20 TEAM
Congratulations to Luke and Harry from all at UWA Rugby
Australian Under 20s Coach Adrian Thompson today announced the extended National Squad including Western Force and UWA flyhalf Luke Burton and UWA hooker Harry Scoble.
Junior Elite Coach and WA Under 20 Coach Dwayne Nestor says it’s pleasing to see the Western Australian representation increasing from last year’s squad.
“On the back of his excellent performances at last year’s IRB Junior World Championship and his form this season, Luke Burton’s inclusion was a highly probability.
“Harry Scoble was an Australian Schools representative but has spent the past couple of years focusing on his university studies. It’s been fantastic to see him come back refreshed and he’s worked very hard to play some very good rugby and it’s great to see him benefiting from that.
“There were also a number of other players, including Corey Thomas, and Richard Hardwick, that were certainly in the mix and I believe were unlucky not to be selected. However, with the work ethic and commitment they’ve shown to their rugby, their opportunities will certainly come.”
