Pride of the North
Shamrocks Rugby Club is one of the highest profile sporting entities in the Illawarra.
Playing rugby as a club since 1970, the club comprises a membership
and supporter base of well over 600 people.
The club fields teams in the Illawarra District Rugby Union Competition in NSW Australia. There are several junior sides from U/7’s through to U/17’s as well as our three senior grade sides.
In 2018, 2nd and 3rd grade made finals appearances, following on from 2016 where the club performed extremely well, finishing minor premiers in all three grades, IDRU club champions and grand finalist in 1st and 2nd grade.
In 2019, 2nd grade finished minor premiers and both 1st and 2nd grade have qualified for the Grand Final on September 14th.
Shamrocks 1st Grade and 2nd Grade sides are both headed to the IDRU Grand Final at WIN Stadium on September 14th, 2019.
After a phenomenal year this is the pinnacle - to have two sides competing for the biggest prize in our 50th year as a club.
"We've worked really hard for this," coach Paul Ridgway said. "We've earned ourselves an opportunity to meet Avondale in the grand final.
"The boys really wanted it, they showed that in the way they played, they controlled the ball for long periods of time, worked out of trouble in the first half and worked really hard to get the win.
"It feels fantastic at the moment, but we've got to get our nose to the grind stone now."
Get on down to WIN Stadium to support the boys - tickets here, 2nd grade kick off at 1:50pm and 1st grade under lights at 6pm after the NRC curtainraiser between NSW Country Eagles and Fijian Drua.
