Its time to register for season 2018


Register Now

The Newcastle Griffins coaching team and committee are pleased to announce we are once again taking registrations of new and returning players for the 2018 season. We are once again using RugbyLink exclusively to collect player payments.

For returning players, we encourage you to register immediately to cover yourself for insurance. You will need to register for the season prior to playing the first trial game to be insured including Dubbo 7s. Players who have not registered will not be permitted to compete.

The price which has been set by the committee this year is $220 per season. Despite the affiliation fees increasing for NSW Rugby Union and Newcastle Hunter Rugby Union, we have reduced our fee by $30 per player from last year.

For the $220 collected, the fee is disbursed as follows:

  • Rugby Australia (insurance): $65
  • NSW Rugby Union: $45.75
  • NHRU and CRU: $62.50
  • Newcastle Griffins RUFC: $46.75

Your Griffins club fee goes to expenditure like referee costs, dry cleaning, council fees and other costs of running the club. We are announcing some great complimentary players benefits soon so watch this space.

When registering, you will need to provide RugbyLink with a credit card. $220 will be charged upfront along with a 1.88% processing fee. Please note that unlike past years, we are not taking payments directly to the club, as unfortunately this has led to delinquent payments from players in the past.
