The ACT and Southern NSW Rugby Union is the governing body for rugby union in the Australian Capital Territory and southern regions of New South Wales. The union is represented by one team in the Super Rugby competition, the Brumbies. In 2007, the ACT was also home to the Canberra Vikings in the Australian Rugby Championship, the country's short-lived attempt to establish a domestic professional league in the sport.

The union was founded in 1938 as the ACT Rugby Union. It received its current name after the 2004 Super 12 season, when the Far South Coast and Southern Inland unions of New South Wales joined the ACT and Monaro Rugby Unions.[1] This change also led to the former ACT Brumbies being renamed Brumbies Rugby.
