This year we hope to build on the success and achievements of 2015. The club enjoyed record levels of membership and participation with more than 440 registrations last year. Our players had tremendous success last season with six teams advancing to grand finals and eight teams in championships. Our under 14s tour to New Zealand and under 8s and under 10s tour to Walcha were among the highlights of the year as well as our new coaching program.


Club activities such as the annual dinner, long lunch, march past and trophy day were all well attended by players, families and club supporters last year. We are working on a busy calendar of events for you to enjoy in 2016.


Another highlight of the year was the completion of the lighting upgrade at Tentallon Oval in Lane Cove. LCJRU partnered with Lane Cove Council to invest $68,000 in this project and we hope our players will enjoy the enhanced facilities this season at our home ground, Tentallon Oval.


LCJRU would like to thank our sponsors for their continuing support in 2016. The support of Ray White Lane Cove, Apple Dental and Lane Cove Orthodontics is greatly appreciated by club members and the local community.


Join us for a sensational 2016 season.

U16 Gold - This barbarian team of Lane Cove and Drummoyne, affectionately known as “the Drovers“, came together earlier this year after some great recruitment effort from coaches parents and players. They had a had a brilliant season, losing 1 game all year and winning the grand final 26-19 in a nail bitter. For many of the boys this will be their last game for Lane Cove…..what a way to say farewell.Special mention must go to Jill Henry (manager) and assistant coach (Matt) for their work with the club over the years. 

20150906_134041_resized (700x603)Extra Special mention to Byron Kerr, who started coaching these boys 11 years ago in the under 6s and has stuck with them all the way through….a true club man and a brilliant coach. The boys paid him back with a trophy. Well played boys and Byron.

U13 Gold

Played in the B grade division where they were extremely competitive all year. Came up against a strong Chatswood team but were resounding winners 29-7. This is one impressive team whom we feature strongly for the next few years. There is talent right across the field and they were firing on all cylinders in the GF. Well done to Greg Easy and Steve Arcus for doing such a great job and congrats to all the boys..

U12 Gold

Had a fantastic season culminating in a huge 27-7 victory in the final of B Division.Forwards and backs worked really well all year to create a solid defensive unit coupled with plenty of razzle dazzle in the backs. Well done to Dave Best and his crew for  what turned out to be a brilliant season for the lads.

U10 Blue

What better way to kick start your journey through Junior rugby than to win a grand final in your first year out of minis. This was no easy feat.,…a grueling grand final where the boys triumphed 12-10 against a determined West team. These guys played with a style and passion that is beyond their years…the club is in a great position with young players like this coming through the ranks.


We had 4 teams who played in grand finals and did not come away with a trophy. But they all played in a manner for which the club can be proud.

U15 GOLD –  the first LCJRC team in living memory to compete in the A DIVISION grand final …. an outstanding achievement in itself, and they came soooooo close. Playing against a Blacktown team which boasted a front row weighing in over 380kg and a number of fast and brutal loose forwards, these lads played out of their skin and almost won. There was only 1 try in it with 5 mins left and our boys threw everything at them. Alas the game finished 26-19…but they should be proud for what they achieved. Well done to Matt Glascott and Simon Gilles for putting one of the finest Lane Cove teams ever seen on the paddock.

U14 GOLD – played against a star studded Penrith side in the B Division grand final and lost 19-17.Having gone up 5-nil early, the Covies  struggled to containing a couple of powerful running backs from Penrith and soon found themselves down 3 tries to 1. But they did not give up….indeed they scored 2 tries in response and almost came away with the trophy. Every boy tried his heart out…..forwards tackled and drove like their lives depended on it. The backs ran and tackled all day, taking risks to get the meat they truly deserved. Thanks to Michael Clements, who after 12 years of coaching still manages to get revved up every week. What a legend of the club. See you next year fellas!
