Rugby League

South Newcastle

One of the original clubs from 1910, the Lions have won 12 Newcastle Rugby League titles. Their home ground Townson Oval is one of the most picturesque in local footy.

The Lions had two great eras in the 60’s and 80’s. During the 60’ they won 3 titles in 5 seasons, whilst in the 80’s they were runners up two years in a row before winning back to back titles in 1988 and 1989. The Lions would then have to wait 27 years before lifting the first grade trophy again.
