KWP Limping Leos -Over 35's Rugby
KWP Limping Leo's: A KWP Rugby Over 35’s Golden Oldie Union Team "Reviving the spirit, reliving the glory."
Rugby is a sport that brings people together, fostering a sense of camaraderie and friendship. For those who have grown up playing the sport, it holds a special place in their hearts. But what happens when the body can no longer keep up with the demands of the game? That's where KWP Limping Leo's comes in.
KWP Limping Leo's is a Golden Oldies Rugby Union team that was founded in 2009 for the World Masters Cup held in Sydney. The team was formed as part of the KWP Junior Rugby Union and was founded by a group of parents who wanted to continue playing the sport they love. The team's focus is on having fun and playing the game with friends, and their motto "we will always make work on Monday" reflects this.
The team is open to anyone and everyone, you just have to be over 35 and be willing to put up with plenty of drop ball and missed tackles your ability is really irrelevant. If you're looking for a place to play touch rugby and join in on the fun, KWP Limping Leo's is the place for you. The team meets every Tuesday night (optional) to play touch rugby and they put on their official game jerseys to play about 10 games a year, with most on a Friday night with a few weeks break between games. The modified games are a great opportunity to socialise and make new friends, as well as to relive the glory days of your rugby playing past or celebrate your well over 35 and playing for first ever game to impress the kids.
The club has grown over the years and now boasts an alumni of over 100 past and present players, including some marquees who only play a few games a year but want to be part of something special. The team hosts the Battle of the North Shore and a foundation member of Hexagon Rugby. All our games are on the Upper North Shore.
So, if you're looking for a place to play rugby, have fun, and make new friends, come down to KWP Limping Leo's. We need you to keep the team going. With a focus on fun and a welcoming atmosphere, you're sure to have a great time and come away with new memories and friendships.
