Life Members

Life Membership is the single highest honour awarded the by the Hunters Hill Rugby Union Football Club. Awardees stand out in their contribution to the club, both on and off the field, and have often taken on roles in Rugby and the broader Hunters Hill Community beyond the confines of HHRUFC. Unfortunately, a fire in the NSW Rugby Union Records in 1973, and another fire in the Hunters Hill Council Chambers in 1978, has left gaps in our record of many of these achievements.
