Team info

Melbourne Academy

The Melbourne Academy is always looking to welcome players from U17 to U18 - why not come along and join us every Tuesday and Thursday at training.

The Academy is a competitive and fun development team that participates in a structured fixture arrangement as an introduction to senior rugby for new, returning or developing players. We train together alongside/with the Melbourne Seniors and players 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 and has a true "One Club" philosophy.

Training (The MSP, Cockshut Lane, Melbourne)
Tuesdays & Thursdays
19:00- 20:30
Matt Derbyshire (Director of Rugby)
Gary Rudkin (Head Coach - Seniors)
