Look at these dapper gents from the Sydney University Football Club in 1871!
Founded in 1863, the origins of the club are found in matches against crews of visiting naval ships. The Sydney University Football Club is the oldest club outside of Britain, and the eighth oldest in the world!
Boys, if you’re interested in joining the club you can check out their website here: http://www.sydneyunirugby.com.au/.
Sydney University Football Club will be present at O Week (Wednesday 29 February - Friday 2 March), so you can chat to some of the current members about how to join or support the team.
There is also a Women’s Rugby Union Club.
You can find out more about playing rugby union at the University of Sydney on the Sydney Uni Sport and Fitness website.
