This Sunday, the Brisbane Hustlers will be hanging out at our major sponsor, The Wickham, as Brisbane’s best street party Big Gay Day kicks off! We’ll be manning a stall where you can learn more about the Hustlers and buy merch!
Then at 5.30pm, we’ll be doing a special Rugger Bugger Hustler performance on the main stage, keep an eye out for our boys showing some skin!
Returning to northern NSW in early February, new and experienced players alike had an intense weekend of rugby in our annual bootcamp. Despite some roasty weather, the boys were able to smash through a variety of drills, expanding on their own skill sets in position-specific sections as well as team runs. Join us as we gear up for season launch in 2018, new players always welcome – check our page for updates or get in touch.

This year the Hustlers will venture to Brisbane’s spiritual home of Rugby for their 2017 boot camp. Being held on Saturday the 25th of February, the grounds where the team made their 2016 Pegg Cup finals debut.
Across the afternoon the team will participate in a series of sessions covering all facets of the game; giving returning players an opportunity to hone their skills, and new players a chance to learn the fundamentals.
Given how rare such an opportunity to train and play at Ballymore is, the boot camp is also open to all new players interested in participating this season. Just reach out to the club via Facebook for more details.
To top the day off, the team will retire to a local watering hole to watch the professionals go at it in the Waratahs V Force game from 6:45pm.
Get a feel for the action by checking out some of the photos from last year’s boot camp here.
The Brisbane Hustlers are commencing their preseason training on Monday, January 30 from 6:30 pm at CP Bottomley Park, Coorparoo (aka Easts Rugby Union Club).
The team will be wasting no time in 2017 and will be holding two training sessions per week, Monday and Wednesday evenings both from 6:30 pm at Bottomley Park. The club encourages new and returning players to bring a water bottle and boots if available (although not a requirement yet). Whilst mouth-guards will not be a necessity for these early sessions, we encourage everyone to start thinking about buying one.
New players will get an introduction to the basic game mechanics and skills before being introduced to the contact elements of the sport in later sessions this year. Player safety is paramount in all training sessions and our coaching staff will ensure players have the requisite skill set before progressing into the more technical elements of the sport.
Returning players will be welcomed back with some fitness and skills work to help get rid off the off-season cob webs.
When arriving at Bottomley Park, try parking in one of the two car parks on Halifax St. The team will be meeting at end of the main car park that attaches to the Easts Club House. If you get lost, feel free to reach out via Facebook.
Easts Rugby Union Location:
The Brisbane Hustlers Rugby Union Club will be holding their 2017 Open Day on January 14th at New Farm Park, from 3 pm.
The Open Day is an opportunity for players and supporters alike to come and get more information on the club’s 2017 goals, meet current members, have a sausage sizzle, and maybe even play some touch football.
If you’ve thought about playing rugby, but weren’t sure where to begin – then this is the perfect event. We will have members in attendance who have joined in the last year that can talk to you about their experience with the club and what to expect. If you’ve played rugby for years, we will also have some seasoned vets with whom you can diagnose the current Wallabies pitfalls.
We hope to see you down there!
