OUR TEAMS

Senior Men

Taroona has two Senior men's teams, playing in the statewide roster. We train as one group and have a strong squad mentality rather than two teams. 

New players at all skill levels are welcome.

Training is at 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Rugby Park New Town. 

Senior & Junior Women

Taroona currently has two women's teams playing in the 7s roster and combines to play 15s when games are available. We are also looking to build a junior women's team. 

We are on the lookout for new players and welcome newcomers at all skill levels with any experience. 

Training is 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursday at Rugby Park New Town.

2019 Roster not yet confirmed
Junior men

Taroona has a strong history of junior rugby with many of our senior men having come up through the ranks. We currently have under 14s, 16s and 18s teams. All new players at all skill levels welcome.

Training is held from 4.30pm on Tuesday and Thursdays at Rugby Park New Town.

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 homes games. There is a core of past players, parents and partners of the current team who make up this great group. 
Membership provides a counter meal, beer wine or bubbles ahead of these three matches. 

In 2019 the dates are: 
Saturady 13 April 2019 Taroona v Harlequins
Saturday 25 May 2019 Taroona v Devonport
Saturday 15 June 2019 Taroona v Glenorchy

Please contact us if you are interested in joining.

 

OUR CLUB

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 turned into the great club it has become.


The past decade has seen on-field success in the senior men’s division with premierships in 2007, 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2018, 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
