Sydney University Football Club, founded in 1863 (this date was disputed by historian Tom Hickie who argues that it was 1865), is the oldest club now playing rugby union in Australia, and as such is nicknamed "The Birthplace of Australian Rugby" or simply "The Birthplace".
The club currently competes in the NSWRU competition and has claimed the Tooheys New Cup and senior and colts club championships in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. They also compete in the Juniors NSWJRU State Championships. In 2007 they fielded teams in the Under 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s and 15s. The under 13s made history in 2007, being Sydney Uni Football Club's first junior team to win a championship.
The club is officially known as "Sydney University Football Club" because it was the first club of any football code in NSW. The club also played Australian rules football in its early history, making it the first NSW club in that code as well.
Its nicknames have also included "Quizkids" and "Varsity". They are also often referred to as the "Students".
Current Wallabies playing for the club include Phil Waugh and Dean Mumm. In all, 103 Sydney University players have been selected to play for Australia. The first Australian representative was H.A. Marks in 1899 and the most recent was Ben McCalman (2010). The club's most famous Wallaby would probably be Nick Farr-Jones, who had a long representative career (including World Cup success).
