Palmerston Rugby Union Club fields senior sides in A Grade and B Grade.  We have won many minor premierships throughout the grades and while A grade premiership wins have proven a little more elusive, we were able to win the premier grade in 1990-91, 1998-99 and 2002.

Our club encourages all of its players and officials to compete at the highest levels. Over the years we have had significant numbers of players selected in NT representative sides. The NT sides that beat Scotland and Western Samoa were captained by players from Palmerston Rugby Union Club.  Our club has also served as a pathway for officials to further their rugby careers. Several NTRU Board Members and an ARU Board Member all learnt their trade with the Palmerston Crocs.

Our senior players have the opportunity to compete in a variety of events throughout the year.  We enter a 7s side in the Heineken Hottest 7s in the World held in Darwin over the Australia Day long weekend. Our 10s and 15s play in events in regional towns within the Northern Territory as they occur.  We also support two Corporate 7s teams by providing training equipment and use of our facilities.
