Welcome to Roos News

We hope you had a wonderful holiday break with your family and friends – can you believe we are starting to talk footy already?

Welcome to the first Roos news for the 2023 Season.

2023 will be a big year of footy for the club, as we head into our 110th year!   No other club in the North Sydney or Manly competitions have such a proud history as the Roos and we are one of the oldest surviving Junior Rugby League clubs in the country.

Of course, we plan to celebrate this in style, with a limited edition 2023 player kit, a birthday party and plenty of other events throughout the year.  We can’t wait to get the party started.

To kick off the celebrations, we are offering for all our competition age groups (u9s +) the opportunity to have their names on the back of their playing jersey.  Register before 31st January to take up this offer.

In other exciting news, the Roos are pleased to announce that it will be fielding a Senior’s team in the competition for the first time since 2016.  This re-introduces Sunday afternoon footy to Willoughby Park which has been sorely missed over the year.  Another great way to celebrate our 110th birthday and our proud history.

Lastly, we would like to say a thank you to all our players, parents and volunteers who give up their time to each year to help make the Roos the wonderful community it is.  The feedback we get from parents is amazing (and appreciated) when we get compared to other winter sports and as a committee, we will strive to make that community even stronger in the years to come.

To quote the great Tony Bellia, Look Left, Look Right, Watch Out!  ROOS ABOUT!


Come & Try Day

Our first Come & Try Day will be on SUNDAY 5 FEBRAURY at Willoughby Park #2 from 11am to 1pm.    We welcome all new and returning players to come down for a run around and BBQ.

We hope to see you there!
