Everything you need to know as an Eagles player in 2022
Round one is just eight weeks away! If you’re planning on lacing up the boots for the Eagles this year, here is a list of everything you need to know.
Training is Wednesday and Friday evenings at Nicholls Oval right up until Fri 8 April. Training kicks off at 6pm sharp, please aim to be there 15 minutes early.
From 12 April training will return to Tuesday and Thursday nights at Nicholls Oval for the remainder of the season. Sessions will start at 7pm.
The reason for the chopping and changing is due to the primary oval being resurfaced and multiple clubs have to share the facilities.
Registration is now open via the Rugby Xplorer App. Players, coaches and volunteers who attend training and undertake club duties unregistered do so at their own risk. Registration means you’re insured for injuries.
Despite some financial challenges due to Covid throughout 2021, fees have remained at $315 for all players. This covers things like uniform, training gear, insurance, referee fees, medical equipment, player support, ground bookings, camps/transport.
If you wish to discuss support in your fees, please speak to a coach or the club’s General Manager Trent Pollard.
The Eagles Seniors will register teams in the Men’s Premier and 1st Division, and the Women’s Premier 15’s Division.
Women’s Premier Fixture will be available soon.
Our volunteers work extremely hard to make our club what it is. The club asks all players to read through the 2022 Player Expectations page – which is a list put together by the club’s previous leadership group.

Sponsored players will have their Rego fees reimbursed once the business has paid an invoice. Club sponsorships are tax deductible.
The club social events calendar will be released shortly! We’re awaiting the Women’s Fixture and home ground information prior to locking our events in.
The club is adhering to ACT Gov and Brumbies guidelines surrounding Covid-19 protocols and have appointed a Covid-19 Officer in Rich Holder.
