Contrary to popular belief, there is life after grade Rugby.
The over 35s competition has been running in Perth since 1991 and there are currently 15 teams that play every second Sunday in the rugby season.
They don’t play for 80 minutes or even keep score but you can play as competitively as your body will still let you.
So if playing fourth or fifth or sixth grade is getting a bit too hard and the wife and kids are complaining that they never see you, over 35s Rugby could be for you.
