Come on, Brumbies!

After a thumping quarter-final win over the Sharks last Saturday, our beloved Brumbies will battle the Argentinian Jaguares in the Super Rugby semi-finals this Saturday morning.

Can’t make it to Buenos Aires to cheer our boys on in person? Don’t worry, neither can we… because we are throwing a semi-final party to watch the game right here in Turner.


We are opening early and serving up breakfast and drink specials so you can join us and watch the semi-final big screen with stadium sound.



The RUC will open at 8am on Saturday 29th June for a 9.05am kick off.


Breakfast specials:

To accommodate for the 9.05am kick off time, we will be cooking tasty breakfast specials, including:

  • Argentinian eggs, three rough fried eggs, bacon, onion, herbs, paprika and toast – $ 12
  • Deluxe egg and bacon roll – $10
  • Smashed avocado on toast with bacon, fetta and salsa – $14


Drinks specials:

As well as serving up our usual suspects for those morning beer lovers, we have 2 drinks specials available throughout the morning:

  • El Latte Loco: Large latte w/ shot of Café Patron tequila – $11
  • The Hot Brumby: Large hot chocolate w/shot of Baileys – $9.5
  • Bloody Mary – $9.50



We are giving away a VIP package for the game, including:

  • The 4 best seats in the house for you and 3 friends,
  • Breakfast for the group, and
  • A welcome drink on arrival to get the party started.

All you need to do is upload a video of yourself on Facebook or Instagram with your best pronunciation of “Jaguares” and tag the RUC.

CNBC ACT Bowls Rookie Champion

Last week’s ACT Rookie women’s event was won by one of our well-known bowlers and “leading lawndies”, Gina Dowley… and what an absolute talent she is. Our Secretary Manager Jeremy mentioned that he saw some of her bowling and “was glad that [he] didn’t play against her!” We’ve also been told by several sources that after he left, her bowling got even better.


Well done Gina! We’re sure all the Canberra North members join us in singing your praises when it comes to not only being a star “Rookie”, but for also being a true “high-bowler” and shining member of the women’s division.


A big shout out to all our members who gave up time to assist with the running of the Rookie Singles. Kate Schipp and our umpires certainly put in a big weekend, and Terry and Joseph Doyle did a great job of having the two greens prepared and running well for the start of each day.


The day simply wouldn’t have rolled as smoothly as it did, without all the dedicated people who volunteered to mark the day. We’re a lucky club to have members who constantly put up their hands to assist whenever they can.

Belconnen United Sharks RLFC was established in 2016, being formerly, Belconnen United Scholars. The Sharks focus on creating a family orientated community club that coaches, managers, staff and members can come and experience local Rugby League. To congregate, network and build a great culture. The Sharks provide a club that Junior Sharks can aspire to join and continue their footy experience in a safe, friendly and knowledgeable environment. In the past 3 years, the club has recruited experienced coaches and players, which has attracted like-minded people to continue a strong, successful club for their future players.

The club currently has 3 Grades, Ladies League Tag, Reserve Grade and 1st Grade. Although currently missing a 19’s team, the Junior Sharkies are working hard and have a great bunch of talented Kids on their way! The small, but dedicated, group of volunteers make up a committee and support staff. These people are incredibly generous with their time, with each providing a different and invaluable skill set.

The RUC is a great supporter of the Sharks and together, they have built not just a commercial relationship, but a personal one as well. The RUC has hosted some great club functions, like a Hypnotist evening (hilarious!) Karaoke and the Shark’s aftergame Presentations. The club has a Phantom Race day/evening coming up on the 1st June, they are really looking forward to.

If you would like to become involved with their great club as a player, volunteer or even just a spectator, you can contact them on Facebook or email
