The Western Sydney Two Blues and Wanderers Rugby Newcastle are pleased to announce the commencement of a new sister club relationship from 2020.
The Newcastle and Western Sydney clubs, both known as the Two Blues, are looking to build a positive association beyond sharing the same colours. On the plans is an annual trial fixture, a soon to be named perpetual trophy, the sharing of coaching knowledge and resources, the potential to create mutual team building opportunities along with supporting each-others results; forging a link between our two clubs.
Western Sydney General Manager Craig Morgan said “We share the same colours and moniker – the Two Blues.Wanderers is one of the most respected and strongest clubs in Newcastle and we have some mutual contacts and existing relationships, so this is a great opportunity to further develop a mutually rewarding and beneficial association. By workingtogether, sharing knowledge and resources, creatingopportunity and experiences between the two clubs and club members we will all benefit. We are excited to be launching into a relationship with Wanderers, building a foundation and exploring further opportunities as the association develops, it’s a great thing for both clubs and the game”.
Hunter Wildfires player, Hayden Cole, moved to Newcastle at the start of the year from Western Sydney after being a regular first grade player for the Two Blues in the Shute Shield. Colehas linked up with the Wanderers club for season 2020.
Wanderers President Peter Chrystal said “We are excited to have Hayden join us, he has been a great addition to our Club and brings with him a wealth of experience. We are proud to have aligned with the Western Sydney Two Blues, we share core principles and this opportunity of a sister-club arrangement will support player, coach and match official development. With rugby it’s not just about what’s happening on the field but also what’s occurring off the field and this partnership will give us opportunity to further expand our player development pathways which not only focus on skill development but also on social responsibility.”
Western Sydney head into round two of a shortened Shute Shield competition this coming weekend.
The Two Blues are excited to announce the development of a community-based partnership with Western Sydney University’s sports faculty.
This partnership is initially based on the sharing of resources and providing opportunities for members of the Two Blues and WSU communities.
The Two Blues will have access to training and self-development programs and will be supporting WSU interns completing the Developing Sports Professionals Unit of their Bachelor of Business Sports Management degree with the interns undertaking various tasks around the club as part of their studies.
The Two Blues and WSU will also be looking to share rugby resources with the Two Blues looking to support WSU with their rugby programs.
Everyone is working hard behind the scenes with talk of a modified competition potentially kicking off in July. Our players and coaching teams have remained active to ensure we are ready to put our best foot forward with our squads training as individuals in isolation to the coaching teams programs.
Enjoy a bit of old school rugby and board game fun whilst we all endure self isolation at home during the Covid19 Stay at Home regulations. It’s important that we stay at home, social distance and stay safe. So to help break down some boredom particularly for the kids as they hit school holidays, we have come up with a fun rugby board game for everyone at home.

Two Blues Senior Grades & Colts were fortunate to get trial one underway and completed on Saturday 14th March taking on Southern Districts at Grantham Reserve Seven Hills.
On a perfect day for rugby (pouring rain) the Two Blues and Southern Districts went at it in a highly competitive day of rugby with some extremely positive signs for the Two Blues with a number of players making an impression on the coaching team.
The colts delivered an exciting display of running rugby showcasing the talent which has been nurtured through our young colts program over the last 12-24 months and the squads demonstrated enough to indicate that they should be a competitive force for opponents in 2020.
Senior grades showed some real physicality also demonstrating where the squads are heading for season 2020 as a group, opponents will not enjoy the contact areas with some big collisions and strong ball running a feature of the trial.
