History

Behind every team is a story

Perth Bayswater Rugby Union Club is the oldest continually operating rugby club in Western Australia. Perth Club was formed at the Criterion Hotel on 11 April 1905 and played their inaugural match on Saturday May 20th, 1905, securing an 8-0 win against the Fremantle Pioneers in front of a crowd of 700 at The Esplanade.

Our early history saw Perth RUFC playing out of Langley Park on the city foreshore, with our clubhouse based at the Grosvenors Hotel. In 1951 Perth joined with Northern Suburbs to become Perth Suburbs. The club continued to play as Perth Suburbs until a move to our current Morley location in 1975, which resulted in a third name change to its present form: Perth Bayswater Rugby Union Club.

The club has been blessed to see several great players grace our fields over our storied history. Life member Rod Cann who scored 302 points in 1969, with 18 tries, 53 penalties, 43 conversions and 1 drop goal to hold the record of most point scored in a season; home grown Darren Murphy who went on to play Queensland A and for NTT In Japan; as well as Western Force players including David Smith, Marcel Brache, Chris Heiberg, Jake Strachan, and current fly half and Perth Bayswater junior Reesjan Pasitoa, examples of the quality the have donned the famous black and white hoops over the years.

This quality has often led to on field success, with the club securing ten Premier Grade premierships, and numerous Junior and Women’s titles as well.

The club competes in all Senior and most Junior age-group competitions, fields a well-resourced veteran’s team in the State over 35s Golden Oldies competition, and a Women’s team within RugbyWA women’s competition.

We currently have over 1000 people directly involved with our club, including our young Juniors and families, Senior grade players, volunteers, committee members, as well as our social and life members

Perth is our history, Baysie is our present, and both are our future.

Golden Oldies

Perth’s over 35s competition, more commonly known as the “Golden Oldies” has been running in Perth since 1991, and currently supports 15 teams, including the Perth Bayswater Rugby Club aligned Wandering Pigs.

Golden Oldies play every second Sunday during the Rugby season and provides a perfect avenue for those a little older, but for whom the desire to still play our great game burns bright.

They don’t play for 80 minutes or even keep score, but you can play as competitively as your body will still allow you.

Golden Oldies is equal measure getting on-the-field and playing to the best of your ability, and having a ball off-the-field reliving past glories and sharing stories over a cold ale after the game.

Please contact us if you’re interested in getting involved or would like to know more.
