St. Johns Eagles - It all began...
St Johns Eagles Junior Rugby Football Club (JRLFC) started in 1954, originating from the Boys school, St Johns Lakemba.
St Johns Eagles is part of The Canterbury District Junior Rugby League and has been the proud home to aspiring young Rugby League players in our community for the past 60 years and for many years in the future. St Johns Eagles is a not-for-profit Club that has survived on the generous support of the family and friends, local sponsors and community at large—all dedicated to the growth and development of the sport of Rugby League and the moulding of young players into valued adult members of our community.
St Johns Eagles enables players of all ages to partake in this wonderful sport and has enjoyed the pivotal role of not only securing the local future of rugby league, but indeed promoting the positive and unified spirit of a community whose heart is invested in our country’s greatest game.
St Johns Eagles have many registered players. These players form many sides ranging from Under 6’s to A Grade.
St Johns Eagles is an active and important part of our community. We provide young players with the opportunity to participate in healthy competition, increasing their team skills and athletic ability, all while providing a solid grounding of discipline, fairness and positive life values.
