Australian club championship rugby union

Australian club championship rugby union

The Australian club championship is a challenge match between the Brisbane and Sydney club premiers that was initially played on a regular basis from 1982 to 1992 (inclusive) and on an ad-hoc basis in various other years. The regular scheduling was abandoned in 1993 when the NSWRU insisted on playing each match at Concord Oval in Sydney, rather than on a rotating basis. In 2006 however, the championship was revived when it was agreed that the winners of the previous years premierships would play the challenge match as a curtain raiser to the following year's NSW Waratahs and Queensland Reds Super 14 match.
