Knox Rugby Club was founded in 1959 by Graham Robinson, Warwick Evans and Forbes Pratt – a group of school leavers who wanted to continue with the fun and camaraderie of the school playing fields.
Playing in Sydney’s grass-roots Suburban Rugby competition, one of the largest amateur rugby competitions in the world with over 5000 players turning out every weekend, the club has a storied history – soaring highs and plummeting depths (often in quick succession) marking it’s 60 year existence.
Since 2002 Knox Rugby Club has enjoyed unprecedented success, abruptly relegated at the conclusion of the 1999 season, the club rallied and began a meteoric rise from the depths of fourth division and the brink of closure to the heights of first division, winning four consecutive first grade premierships and club championships in the process.
The success has continued as the club has cemented itself as a first division mainstay with 23 premierships since 2002 across all grades, 4 NSWRU Club Of The Year Awards and 5 Club Championships.
The ongoing strength of the club is only as good as it’s playing and administrative members – unwavering through the club’s history has been the tireless work of a dedicated group of volunteers. Since 2004 the club has honored key figures in the club’s history with life membership.
