In 2013 UTS formed a partnership with Gordon Rugby Football Club, a Sydney Rugby Union Shute Shield Premiership Club. The ability to assist rugby players and help them gain an education will benefit them as they move into a career has been ground breaking for both Gordon Rugby Club and UTS.
Gordon is one of the Premier Rugby Clubs in Sydney Rugby Union. With over 70 years of history the club has won the Sydney First Grade Premiership on nine occasions, and the Club Championship 12 times. The club has had an ongoing relationship with UTS over several years and is looking to strengthen this as new players study at UTS and join past alumni of the University.
Gordon have had more than 30 players become Wallabies and through the UTS Elite and Emerging Athlete Program we are looking to help students achieve their sporting goals. The introduction of 7’s to the Olympics has put increased focus on the UTS 7’s program. Gordon has contributed significantly to the UTS 7’s squad that won gold at the 2013 and 2016 Australian University Games. We expect the relationship between Gordon and UTS will ensure the strength of the UTS 7’s team will be maintained at future National University Championships. Furthermore, Gordon Rugby now has a women’s 7’s program that trains regularly and competes at 7’s tournaments throughout the year.
Gordon is actively recruiting new talent for the 2018 season and welcomes players of all abilities, both male and female. If you’re interested in playing please visit the Gordon website or Facebook, or email the club.
