Briars Junior Rugby

Come and play Briars Junior Rugby 2024

Come and play rugby union at our family friendly club. In our 10th year of junior rugby we will have 2 stages of Juniors. Briars Junior Rugby is here to support your kids, and teach them what they need to know on the field.

Briars Minis—U6s–U9s

The first being our Minis which is the Under 6’s – Under 9’s. The Minis form part of the Inner West Minis Competition and games are played on Saturday morning at St Lukes Oval Concord from 8am-11am. If your child is turning 5 in this calendar year they can become a Briar.

Briars Juniors—U10s–U16s

The second stage of Juniors is the U10’s – Under 16’s.  Briars are a part of the Sydney Juniors Competition. These games are played on Sundays at various locations depending on which part of the competition we are placed in. A number of games will be held at our home ground Rothwell Oval.

Briars Juniors—U18s Boys

Open to boys aged from 16-18 years and as part of the Colts pathway initiative, you will train alongside Briars Colts and Senior mentors.

Still being part of the SJRU Competition, games are played on Sundays at various locations across Sydney, with a number of home games played at Rothwell Park.

We would love your help

For every team, we require 2 parents to volunteer. We require a coach and a team manager. The coach will be provided with coaching training, and will be required to run training sessions each week, and be there at each game on the weekend. The team manager’s role is to ensure all players are available each week, and to assist the coach as needed.
