Drawing on over 60 years of proud tradition, the Armidale Rugby Union Football Club is a mainstay of rugby in the New England region of Northern Tablelands, New South Wales. The club fields teams in each of the three senior grades of the New England competition. It is committed to junior rugby development, and has recently grown to include an affiliate netball club.

The game they play in heaven has been good to us. The Armidale Rugby Club has a successful record, winning premierships and helping players achieve selection at representative levels. During our preseason each year we host The Armidale Knockout — perhaps the longest running fifteen-a-side rugby carnival in Australia — which regularly attracts sides from as far away as the Sydney suburban competition.

A genuine strength of the Armidale Rugby Club (The Blues) is its diverse and vibrant community. New players and supporters are always welcome, and can expect to meet a mix from all walks of life.
