Our History

Hurstville United Junior Rugby League Football Club is located within the St George District, and prides itself on it's long standing commitment to developing Rugby League since the early 1900's.

 

After a period of dormancy the Club rallied in 1985 when a group of like-minded parents with a community spirit began the push for football sides to cater to the youth of the Hurstville area who were not adequately catered for in this domain and the Struggos were reborn.  It has been the continuation of this spirit and level of involvement by parents within the area that has seen Hurstville United JRLFC become one of the largest within the St George District.

 

The Club won the Senior Championships and the Junior Rugby League championship for 17 consecutive years up until the end of 2006.  Over 100 players having played representative football for St George in Jersey Flegg, SG Ball and Harold Matthews cup.  A number of these players have reached the heights of playing First Grade with the NRL and beyond including Lance Thompson, Anthony Mundine, Nathan Brown, Gordon Tallis, Adam Peek, Matt Parsons, Tate Mosley, Brett White, Charlie Leaeno, Garry McBride, Shane Walker, Robert Miles, Michael Korkidas, Ben Kusto, Brad Smith and most recently Chase Stanley who while still at school debuted in First Grade and played Test Football for New Zealand in 2007.
