History

Palmerston Rugby Union Club is one of the founding clubs of the Northern Territory Rugby Union, fielding teams in the original 1976/77 season.  Back then, the city of Palmerston did not exist - the club was named after the original settlement in Darwin.  In 1984 the club relocated south of the Berrimah line, and in doing so became the first major sporting organisation to call Palmerston home. We have been here ever since and have continued to grow and be part of the Palmerston community.

The club has had many successes over the years, including premiership wins across all senior grades, a significant presence in representative teams and a successful junior program.  Probably the club's greatest achievement however, has been the many people that have made up the club over the decades - the players, the supporters and volunteers. Our club has thrived for over 35 years thanks to the valuable contribution of all those involved.

Club song

I love the smell of Palmy in the morning,
It smells like victory!
Ohhhhhh we're the team that's the best
We're the team that beats the rest
We're the boys from... Palmerston
In the lineouts we jump higher
The backline is a flyer
Beneath the tropic sun... Booom Boooom
Rain or shine things are fine
And we'll always cross the line
We're the boys from Palmerston...
Palmerston, Palmerston, Yeah Yeah Yeah...
