Eastern Suburbs Rugby Union Football Club
Societe Generale is the proud sponsor of the Eastern Suburbs District RUFC in Sydney, which is Australia's oldest District Rugby Club. This sponsorship of a rugby club in the Asia Pacific region again confirms Societe Generale's long-standing commitment to the world of rugby.
As the oldest and most successful club in Australia, with a total of 79 premiership titles or shields across Grade and Colts from 1900 to 2013, and an additional 9 club championships titles, the club is a famous breeding ground for young promising athletes.
Over 118 years of history, famous players like H.H. (Dally) Messenger, G.C. (Wakka) Walker, sports star Harald Baker and Victorian Cross winner Bede Kenny have built the club's reputation. More recently, Easts have seen names such as Ryan Cross, Huia Edmonds, Clyde Rathbone and Matt Toomua pull on the Easts strip and develop the club's successes.
Nowadays, Easts Rugby is served by a dedicated group of players, supporters, administrators and board members who are looking to carry on the club's strong traditions and write the next chapter in the Eastern Suburbs Rugby Union history pages.
