Being a relatively new club in Taranaki Rugby scene since our amalgamation in 1990 (after celebrating over 100 years of championship winning teams with Star RFC and Spotswood Old Boys) we are now the most proactive, modern and sort-after club to be associated with.

We are proud to boast many professional players that have come through our organisation and played at the highest level; Greg Feek, Andrew Hore, Waisake Naholo, Seta Tamanivalu, Warwick Lahmert, Iopo Iopu-Aso and Andre Taylor who have all gone from being proud 'Spotty Dawgs' to representing our country as All Blacks, All Black Sevens or New Zealand Maori players. [ view our Higher Honours Page ]

Recent Super Rugby representatives include: Waisake Naholo, Charlie Ngati, Seta Tamanivalu, Iopo Iopu-Aso, Mitch Graham, latu Vaeno, Manasa Matele & Toa Halafihi.

Our Taranaki Bulls contingent has been 10 or more players from the past 3 years.

As a club, we are proud of our player's progress and are active with a fantastic recruitment and events committee, always looking to create enjoyment, upskill and promote our players.

Spotty-Pups is the nick-name our junior teams have adopted, and have many teams with girls & boys aged from Under 6 - Under 13. If you would like more information on our Midget Rugby, visit the Pups page here.

At Spotswood United, we are proud of the excitement and experience we create on and off the field with our family-friendly environment. We welcome you to contact one of our team representatives for more information.

Dawgs all day.
