Hunters Hill Rugby is not only one of Sydney's oldest and most famous rugby clubs, but is also regarded as one the best! We pride ourselves on our Motto - Facta non Verba (deeds not words).

Our teams compete in the NSW Sydney Suburban competition - and after a highly successful return to Division One this year (where all Senior teams made finals) - the club is seeking expressions of interest to join and complement our highly talented program as either a Coach or Manager. We have opportunities across our 5 Senior Grades as well as Colts (U21s).

Coaches at HHRUFC are responsible for coaching, recruitment, skill development and management of our players - ensuring that they are the 'best they can be' and reach/exceed their potential. Our aim is very clear - to not only win both the Division One Club Champion and Kentwell Cup, but also provide the premier rugby experience in Sydney!

2023 is already looking to be an exciting year - with the scheduled opening of our clubhouse - and exciting recruitment/retention already well underway.

Over the last few years - the club has invested in the development of coaches - and provided them with the tools they need to be successful. Whether this be equipment, specialist coaching skills, or participation in coaching networking - the club will continue to invest heavily in its coaches. We may also have opportunities for paid coaching roles.
