Playing at Soaks
Associates Rugby Club field senior grade teams from Premier grade through to 4th Grade. We run a Gold squad within our training program for Premier and Reserve grade players, and emerging junior talent. The program ensures continuity between all playing grades in skills development and game plan execution, and allows for individuals to push for selection into Premier grade and representative pathways.
Social rugby is managed mostly in 3rd and 4th grade, and provides a friendly yet competitive environment for all players to enjoy Soaks rugby.
