Sunnybank RFC enter Team in Men’s div

Welcome to Sunnybank RFC, Brisbane, Australia. A great Sevens Club and they will be very good. A first time to the Bangkok International Sevens competing in the Men’s division.TMSB_Logo

Sunnybank Rugby Union Club was founded in 1969 as a junior Rugby Union club, in the southern Brisbane, Queensland, Australia suburb of Sunnybank. As a junior club, it was founded on the principle that any boy, no matter how good or bad a rugby player he was, would get a game. And so it remains in the ranks of the junior players at Sunnybank, however the word “boy” has been changed to “child”.

The new millennium brought another high in Sunnybank’s story. A major coup for SBRU was the signing of England Sevens Star Ben Gollings. In 2005, the Sunnybank First Grade team defeated the Gold Coast Breakers in the Hospital’s Cup Grand Final, to claim the club’s first senior top division championship. This performance was repeated in 2007, when once again the Dragons defeated the Breakers in the Premier Grade Grand Final at Ballymore, the spiritual home of Queensland Rugby. 2006 saw the opening of a new main oval and the opening of a new club house. Also the Premier grade team was knocked out in the semi-finals after losing their two props to wallaby commitments.
