The Club was founded in 1976 and has developed rugby in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne ever since, with a strong focus on creating a family friendly environment upholding the rugby vales of Teamwork, Discipline, Enjoyment, Respect and Sportsmanship.
2018 was a fantastic year for the club, fielding a senior mens team in both the Premiership and Premiership Reserve Competitions for the first time in a while, playing deep into finals.
Our UniPanthers Womens team also won the womens premiership.
As well as our great year across seniors, all 3 of our junior teams took out their respective Premierships winning in the U12, Youth Girls and U18s!
Women have played a significant role in our Club over the years.
Silei Poluleuligaga has coached the combined UniPanthers team to premierships and took the senior mens team to a premiership in 2012 and in 2019 she will lead our Northern Panthers Womens team.
Off the field, we are aiming to continue our growth in player numbers across all age groups and continue growing rugby in Victoria.
On the field, we want to see our senior mens team take the next step that will lead them into Dewar Shield in the short term.
Our teams are looking good to achieve this with big numbers at preseason already, indicating good competition for spots.
As we are fielding a standalone Womens team in a while, we are aiming to go one better than our combined team last year and take out the Premiership.
And as always, we want our juniors to get out there and enjoy the game, build lifelong friendships, and hopefully repeat the successes on the field of last year by taking out the Premiership again!
