National Rugby Championship Results

The National Rugby Championship is the leading domestic professional rugby competition in Australia. It started in 2014 in a bid to further develop rugby in the country. 

The 2017 season saw the introduction of a team from Fiji to the competition, making it a 9 team competition. Also, with a change in ownership the UC Vikings name was changed to Canberra Vikings. The Rams also reverted back to the Greater Sydney Rams name.
