About the project

Rugby 1st is a not-for-profit business-minded rugby network, created for the betterment of rugby in Australia. We exist to support the game and all the Clubs and not-for-profit’s who are working hard to make a positive difference to our sport and community. 

We are here to support the game and the rugby community. 

Recently, The Only Rugby Show broadcasts launched and the aim of this program was to assist Rugby 1st support our key focus area partners:

• Guns Out Spinal Foundation

• Hearts in Union

• NSW Junior Rugby Union; and 

• Newcastle Hunter Rugby Union.

COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the Rugby community and the Rugby 1st fundraising initiatives have the objective of assisting our focus area partners navigate this shock and help them continue their work with;

1. supporting medical research

2. delivering care and practical help to injured players; and 

3. getting community Rugby at all levels back in play.

All proceeds raised by Rugby 1st through the Australian Sports Foundation will be attributed to our four focus area partners (Guns Out Spinal Foundation, Hearts in Union, NSW Junior Rugby Union and Newcastle Hunter Rugby Union) to support the important work they do in the sport of Rugby.
