Wairoa Athletic RFC

Early in the year 1939 several interested people of the town and district discussed the possibility of forming a new rugby team through the amalgamation of some of the lesser teams in the local competition. A meeting for the purpose of forming a new Rugby Football club from Old Boys, Pirates and Waiau clubs was held at St Andrews Hall on Monday  the 20th March 1939. Following the meeting a motion that a new club be formed from the three old clubs was passed.
