Club History

Our Story


It was originally formed in 1924 with Rudd Park as its home ground. After a nine year cessation, in 1959 they reformed with Currumbin in hope of producing a stronger Rugby League Club. 1971 saw the club relocate to Pizzey Park, which is still their current home.

The club was founded in an effort to field three competitive grades in the Gold Coast Group 18 competition and to provide a social club for the population of the local area. Both of these factors have worked and today we have one team playing in the Qld State League Competition, an A Grade and a Colts (Under19) side playing in the FOGS Cup which is based in Brisbane. Our club boasts a playing and coaching staff that have been synonymous with Rugby League in Queensland. Names like Ray McCarron, Graeme Ambrose, Laurie Oar, Wayne Homer, Yogi Thompson, Mick Toomey, and Joe Tangatta Toa are still bandied around the Club as probably the best the Coast has seen.

The Club is a great social venue at any time of the year, whether it be for a cleansing ale or a meal from the bistro or just to come in to say g’day and look around. It is not hard to get involved in a conversation about rugby league any time of the day or night any day of the year. This is not to say that you have to listen to this but nowadays you will find someone in the bar, lounge, gaming room or bistro who will keep you company and guide you in the right direction to show you around the Club.
