Seniors 2.jpg
Senior Men

Taroona has two Senior men's teams, playing in the Premiership (first grade) and Championship (reserve grade) competitions. We train as one group and have a strong squad mentality rather than playing as two separate teams.

Senior Women

Taroona currently fields a senior women's team, playing in the 7s roster and combining to play 15s when games are available.

We are continuing work in developing a supportive women's community. Senior Women engage frequently with juniors to encourage connection and provide support for younger players. 


Taroona has a strong history of junior rugby with many of the senior players having started with the club in their younger years.

All new players aged 10 - 17 at all skill levels are welcome, with junior rugby being played in U17, U15, U13, and some younger divisions.


Senior Training

Training for senior teams is at 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays
at Rugby Park, New Town. 

Pre-Season Training starts late January or early February depending on the season. Check the Taroona Rugby Club Facebook page for more information or contact us using the form below. New players at all skill levels are welcome.

Junior Training

Training for juniors is from 4:30 - 5:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays
at Rugby Park, New Town. 

Training starts around April/May depending on the season. Check the Taroona Rugby Club Facebook page for more information or contact us using the form below. 

Emperor Penguins Club

The Emperor Penguins Club is a group of our most devout supporters who get together for three lunches throughout the season prior to three key home games.

This great group comprises of past players, parents and partners of the current team, all are welcome to join. 

Membership provides a counter meal and beer, wine or bubbles prior to each of the designated matches.

Please contact us if you are interested in joining.

When a group of innovative and dedicated men got together at the Imperial Hotel in Hobart back in 1947 with the idea to form the Taroona Rugby Club, they would not have imagined it would continue for 70 years and turn into the great club it has become.

Recent history has seen on-field success in the senior men’s division with premierships in 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2020, but it is off the field where the club comes into its own. The strong culture we have developed has allowed us to focus on developing junior rugby and pathways into senior rugby. Our culture has allowed us to expand our strong on field performance into success in women’s rugby at senior and junior level.

The club is also an active member of the community with charity events each year which not only raise money but awareness for worthy causes. We honour past players and welcome new supporters through our Emperor Penguins Club, with lunches and events build around key games in the roster each year.

Taroona at its core is a family club. Whether you have a long history in the sport and have moved to Hobart or are looking to try something new and meet new people. Everyone is welcome and made to feel at home at Taroona.

Rugby is what brings us together, but it is our club that keeps us together.

The Taroona Rugby Club is a member of the Tasmanian Rugby Union
