The Griffins Genesis
In 1991, Tech College Rugby Club and Port Hunter Rugby Club merged to form Tech-Port. They then changed the name to the Griffins.
Both of these clubs boast proud histories. The Tech College Rugby Club was formed back in 1948, whilst Port Hunter/Stockton Rugby Club emerged way back in 1895, (disbanding and reforming many times).
The Griffin symbol also holds some significance. This fearsome mythological beast brings together the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion.
Port Hunter`s logo was a seagull and the Tech College's emblem was a tiger.
We field one side in the Patrons Cup competition.
The Hamilton Station Hotel, on Beaumont street in Hamilton, is our sponsor and welcomes all Rugby supporters and players for a cool drink, before or after the match and after training.
Training is Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6pm at Hawkins Oval.
