Nedlands Rugby for Juniors

Nedlands Junior Club

Neddies Juniors is a proud community club with a rich history and culture. Our goal is to promote, foster and grow the game of Rugby Union in WA.
Neddies Juniors was established in 1986 by former players to introduce their children to rugby.
Some members from the original group of 1986 Juniors’ team are still with the club to this day! their children are now playing with Neddies. We are part of a legacy of an exceptional club who have encouraged and built the love of the game of Rugby across many generations, this is something we are very proud of.
