Established in 2013, the New Zealand Falcons RFC is Auckland's home of gay and inclusive rugby union and touch teams. Our kaupapa is to enable both aspiring and seasoned players to come together to participate and enjoy rugby in an open and supportive environment.

We're based at the Ponsonby Rugby Club in central Auckland.

We are not only a sports team. With our dedicated followers and supporters we are a diverse community affecting change within sporting culture in New Zealand society and the world. The team was formed building on the legacy of the former Ponsonby Heroes (1998 - 2004).

The NZ Falcons RFC is one of two gay rugby clubs in New Zealand, an affiliate with the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU), and one of 75 worldwide member clubs of International Gay Rugby (IGR).

Our Location

We are based in Auckland but have players from across the country.

For both rugby union and touch rugby, we train at the Outer Fields of Western Springs Park near the Ponsonby Rugby Club clubrooms. Contact us for further info.

 

 

Rugby Union:
The season begins from March and usually runs until September. We play in the Presidents social grade of the regional Senior Men's Rugby competition administered by the Auckland Rugby Union; Purchas Cup, a trans-Tasman biennial competition; and Bingham Cup, a worldwide competition with 75 other IGR member clubs.

 

Touch Rugby:
Since 2020 the New Zealand Falcons had teams in both the summer and winter touch rugby seasons. We play in the social grade of the regional Senior Men's and Mixed touch rugby competition administered by the Auckland Touch Association.
