Wanderers Rugby Union Club was founded in 1978 by John Jekyll (known to friends as Tubby). As a result of an illness Tubby now resides in Brisbane, due to his disability our club has managed to still contribute funds towards his rehabilitation. We now play under the banner as Cairns RSL Wanderers, as our club have a close association with the Cairns RSL as our major sponsor of ten years. Our club prides itself on being a long standing family orientated club. We have a strong following in Cairns, with past players and social members maintaining a loyal and involved association. Not to mention the ever increasing interest of new and young players and the general public. Wanderers will field three Senior Teams this season – A Grade, Reserve Grade, and Women’s.
This is as well as having a junior rugby commitment from Under 10’s – Under 17’s, which is run as a summer competition from September – December.
