Join us for the exclusive Rugby Championship Long Lunch to kick off the Wallabies’ campaign here in Perth on Friday 16 August from 12:30pm to 4pm.

The Long Lunch will be held prior to the Wallabies-Springboks Test the following day, Saturday 17 August, at Optus Stadium, making it the perfect precursor.

Enjoy an outstanding afternoon of rugby and entertainment, hosted in the River View Room at Optus Stadium, whilst supporting Western Australian rugby community.

Amidst captivating presentations from incredible guest speakers such as Joe Schmidt, Phil Waugh, the soon-to-be announced Wallabies captain and other distinguished guests, indulge in a quality three-course meal with carefully curated wine pairings, as anticipation builds for the Test match clash between the Wallabies and the Springboks.

Decorated former Springboks winger Bryan Habana has also been added as a guest speaker at the event. With 124 caps for South Africa, he was a star in their 2007 World Cup win, scoring a record-tying eight tries. Habana is a three-time SARU Player of the Year, 2007 IRB Player of the Year, two-time Super Rugby champ, and a 2023 World Rugby Hall of Fame inductee, offering plenty of tales to tell.

Guests will also enjoy access to one-of-a-kind memorabilia and experience an exclusive auction, with all proceeds donated back into the rugby community via the Rugby Foundation of Western Australia.

For every table of 10 purchased, the Rugby Foundation of WA will reinvest $300 back into your nominated Club.

This event is proudly supported by the Rugby Foundation of Western Australia, RugbyWA, Western Force and Rugby Australia.
