Our History

The Brighton Tigers – Blood for Supper
In late 1950 Phil Campbell and a couple of other Rugby nuts, got together in the back of Phil’s butcher shop in Glenelg and decided to form the Kingston Rugby Club. The name was chosen over Glenelg to give more area cover over the Kingston Electorate. The players were mainly a few buddies who had learnt to play the game whilst in the services in World War II. In 1951 the inaugural team was entered in the second division in the South Australian competition.
