Kia ora/ Welcome

New Zealand's Oldest Rugby Football Club

As President of Nelson Rugby Football Club Inc (est.1868) it is my pleasure to welcome you to our official website.

Founded in 1868. Rugby began in 1870 with the first game ever played between Nelson and Nelson College at the Botanical Reserve in Nelson City.

We are extremely proud of our history and heritage and are committed to promoting the development of rugby for all people throughout the Nelson and Tasman region of New Zealand and beyond.The aim of the website is to update club activities and provide a historical digital repository for future generations of the club to access.

You are invited to browse the site and you may wish to bookmark the web page for your future ease of use.

Kia Maia,
