Established in 2013, the New Zealand Falcons Rugby Football Club are Aotearoa’s premiere gay and inclusive rugby union and touch team with the goal of enabling both aspiring and seasoned players to come together to participate and enjoy rugby in an open and supportive environment. Based in central Auckland and eight years on, the team was formed building on the legacy of the former Ponsonby Heroes (1998 - 2004).

We are not only a sports team, with our dedicated followers and supporters we are a diverse community affecting change within the sporting culture in New Zealand society and the world.

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).

Kua hinga te tōtara i Te Waonui-a-Tāne. The tōtara tree has fallen in Tāne’s great forest.
We are saddened today to hear our beloved brother Shaun Jacob Hindt has passed away. Shaun is a foundational member who possessed immense mana, built deep friendships, spoke his brilliant mind with a voice that was beautiful in waiata.
Aroha mai to his whānau and friends. Moe mai rā e hoa, we love you Shaun ❤️🖤

If there are any players, supporters looking to attend the tangi on Saturday, Ray (ex coach) is wanting to attend and would share travel cost as I will be at another kaupapa with our car. If so could you PM me to discuss.

So sad to see this, Falcons, all my love to Shaun’s and your families.

So sorry to hear this boys. Sincere condolences to you all x
