Adding Rugby Union to their growing list of sporting disciplines for local clubs and organisations, the sports passionate team at Coast Sport will provide comprehensive coverage for players throughout the 2018 season and beyond.

In 2018 the Razorbacks also hope to field women's and girls' teams as they continue to expand and grow rugby in the community.
According to Razorbacks Senior Vice President, Michael Middleton "we are a family friendly club with a strong social scene off the field. On the field we have a proud tradition of hard, entertaining rugby". Middleton goes on to state "we play a unique style that is fun and dynamic, and our dedicated coaching staff work to develop players and participants on and off the field".
Located at the "Ourimbah Rugby Park", in the grounds of the Ourimbah University Campus at No.10 Chittaway Road, Ourimbah, the facilities are self-funded and maintained through volunteer labour.
