Our History

Newport Rugby Club was established in 1963 (largely for ages below 18). However, in 1966, the first Senior team was formed to play in the NSW Suburban Rugby Competition.

In 1969, the "Tip" at Porter Reserve was converted into a playing field (by way of a bulldozer's demonstration day) to create our current home...

In the early 70s - the then Newport RSL Club (adjoining the oval) was transferred for the use of the Rugby Club.

And in 1972 we won our first Premiership...

Over the years the Breakers (as they have become known) have won a number of premierships - the pinnacle being the 1999 Kentwell Cup...

Perhaps our Greatest year was 2020 during the Covid19 Pandemic...

We won three Premierships, the Club Championship and Club of the Year (which is from all divisions).

The Breakers now field 4 Senior teams plus Colts and have just returned to the 2nd Division competing again for the Barraclough Cup.

Newport believes in mateship, hardwork and fun - with a strong community based ethos. The majority of our players are resident on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. The club has in excess of 250 registered players and officials, and we pride ourselves in the fact that we are one of the most successful clubs in the NSW Suburban competition.

Our home ground is located at Porter Reserve, Burke Street, Newport and we offer players and supporters the benefit of our own club house adjacent to the ground following home games.

The Club seeks to actively participate in the improvement of the local community, by providing a strong football club for the local youth of the Northern Beaches. We have just completed upgrades to the ground with a complete resurface of Porters Reserve, we now have new lights for training and we are upgrading the clubhouse and the change sheds to ensure the local players have the best facilities.
