Welcome to Lindfield Rugby Club, the home of champagne running rugby!

Lindfield Rugby Union Club are proud members of the NSW Suburban Rugby Union Competition and will be competing in division 1 in the 2024 season. 

Over 100 years ago a group of young WWI servicemen defied the odds of the French battlefields and returned home to Lindfield. In 1919 these Old Soldiers established Lindfield Rugby Union Club at Soldiers Memorial Park, Lindfield. The Old Soldiers established a legacy forged on mateship and passion for running rugby, that is as strong today as it was 104 years ago. Thus, it is appropriate that we are proudly known in our community as The Old Soldiers. 

In 2021 the Lindfield Rugby Club established a Women’s 7’s program aptly named Legacy, paying tribute to the Club’s rich history. Legacy quickly established themselves as mavericks of the rugby community, working together with NSW Suburban Rugby to create the first female competition the Joy Johnson Cup.

Our highly successful 2023 season redefined our expectations of success where we fielded 7 teams including:

  • 2 x Women’s 7’s teams
  • 4 x Men’s teams
  • 1 x Men’s U21s Colts.


Lindfield Rugby Club is an inclusive family friendly community where people can come together, stay active and form friendships that extend far beyond the sporting field. 

We are passionate and proud rugby people, with old school rugby values, who hold ourselves to high standards on and off the field. This value was recognised by John Morrison, Chairman of NSW Suburban Rugby stating, “The Club’s success also shows up in how it conducts itself off field as well – in fact if you had a template for a Subbies Club this year, Lindfield would be it everyone from players, managers and supporters”.
