Curtin Rugby Club team takes part in International Gay Rugby competition

[Posted: 9 Oct 2018]

Curtin Rams

The Perth Rams, the newest team at Curtin University Rugby Club and the first WA Gay and LBTQI friendly Rugby Club, played their first match at the end of September. 

As part of the IGR (International Gay Rugby) competition they travelled to Melbourne to play the Melbourne chargers, decked out in their new Curtin Uniforms. 

The club have engaged with the local community in the build up to this match, with several local events to raise awareness and recruit new members and are ramping up for a busy period with the Pride Sports Festival upcoming and plans for an international tour to compete in the IGR Bingham Cup next year. 

The club have been extremely positive about their new home at Curtin and the support they received and are intent on continuing to foster community engagement in an inclusive environment.
