Maitland Rugby Union Club understands that Rugby needs to work with reality, so we developed our support team exactly for that. Whether you have just moved to Maitland or lived here for a long time, we want to help everyone involved with MRUC, and to make you and your family to feel like part of ours. So for all your needs as a MRUC member, player, volunteer or supporter…look no further.

Are you a player who needs a job? Are you moving to the area and need a job? Still looking for your dream job? Just lost a job?

We know how hard it can be throwing yourself into a community you are new to, or not too familiar with…so why not join your fellow MRUC members and get involved with these groups:

Let them know you’re with the mighty Maitland Blacks too!
