Our Story

Between 1967 and 1972, the Eagles (Daramalan) rose up through the ranks of Canberra Rugby, winning grand finals in the Sub-district B division, ACT Third Grade and ACT Second grade competitions. After finally cracking the premier division of ACT rugby, the Eagles won their first ever John I Dent Cup title in 1975.

2016 was a break out season for the club now that the Eagles are proving to be a dominant club in the Nation’s capital, after defeating defending champions Royals in the 2016 Semi-Finals and making the top four of the Women’s, Colts, Third grade, Second grade and First grade competitions.

We’ve had Wallabies, Brumbies and UC Vikings players representing the Eagles, and our playing list has deepened and grown in size and talent.

In 2017, our 50th year, we will look to epitomise these defining terms, both on and off the field. With a focus on playing a hard, fast and physical game mixed with contemporary methods of business and promotion, it wouldn’t be bold to predict a few premierships next season.
