Hornsby Golden Oldies Rugby

Welcome to the home of Buster!


For many years Hornsby has assembled an "unofficial over 35's team" as part of the Back to Hornsby Day games and Club celebrations. Insurance is mandatory to play in official Golden Oldies games away, which without it, has limited the play to 1-2 "friendly" games on home soil each season.

There were many past Hornsby Senior club players along with enthusiastic parents from the junior club who had indicated they would like to play rugby a few more games a year at a social level, without the time commitment of playing and training every week. A few of the junior rugby club dads and ex Hornsby Senior rugby players formed an officially registered Golden Oldies team, the Hornsby Busted Lions, in 2014.

The modified laws of Golden Oldies presents a great opportunity for older players to don their boots once again and have a few fun games throughout the year (whilst still being able to go to work the next day), joining a large fraternity of like-minded oldies both locally and internationally. Aiming to play around 7-8 games throughout the season and a fun tour away from home soil, registered players can play as little or as much as they like  - we play for fun vs spots on the Wallabies these days, so if you enjoy an ale and a laught then you'll fit right in...

We welcome players of all types to the club, weither you are continuing a distinguished career or rekindling an old one, or perhaps you have never played before and are inspired to give it a go.
