Melbourne RFC Academy

The Melbourne Academy currently in its 2nd season. Always looking for players from U17 to U19. Come along and join us every Tuesday and Thursday at training.

The Academy is a competitive and fun development team that participate in a development league as an introduction to senior rugby for new, returning or developing players. We train together alongside the seniors and are given the opportunity to progress from age grade rugby into the senior setup through a well managed, coached and organised structure. The Club welcomes all players, of all abilities.

Training (Cockshut Lane, Melbourne)
