Southern Districts Rugby Club a.k.a Southern Pirates has a proud and strong history within the Victoria Rugby Union Community. Our club was formed in 1972 and has provided a local playing environment in both junior and senior rugby union since this time.Our current president Robert (Robbie) Hunter is a founding member.
Our club was originally formed after interested parties met following a message in the Public Notices of the local newspaper. The Club was originally named
“Skye Frankston” and was allocated a playing ground off Frankston-Dandenong Road in Lyndhurst - See Constitution here.
Our club`s name changed to “Frankston Rugby Union Club” and was relocated to Worland Park in Karingal
Our club relocated to Centenary Park on McClelland Drive in Frankston
Our latest move to our present grounds at Riviera Reserve, Eel Race Rd, Seaford. Since that move we have undergone yet another name change to “Southern Districts Rugby Club” but still proudly wear the royal blue and gold!
Today our club is proud to boast some of the finest on and off field facilities, coaches and support staff in Victoria. Registered Players compete in a total of 12 age groups from under 6s to Senior Grade (Including Woman & Masters). Southern Districts competes in the Premier division which is the highest division of rugby union in Victoria -now known as Melbourne Rebels Union
Southern Districts Rugby Club is proudly affiliated with the Cerberus Rugby Union Club in the Senior Rugby. Our club is one of the few to play a Colts side (Under 20s). There is considerable talent coming up through the ranks and as such the 2014 season promises to be successful for the Colts side.
Our club is also well represented in Victoria state rugby with our Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18s sides all making the Grand Final during the 2013 season. The Under 14`s won the 2013 Premiership while our Under16 side made it to the Grand Finals.
In 2015 our under 12`s took premiership honours while our u14`s reached the semi`s.
Southern Districts also has Pathway teams i.e Under 6 & Under 8 teams.
