The Club was founded in 1874, making it the longest standing Rugby Club in Auckland. With this comes a rich history to boot.  

From humble beginnings in 1874 to the accomplished stature in 2014, the people of Ponsonby have and always will be the backbone of the Club. There are many famous faces and names that have donned the Blue & Black jersey including Dave Gallaher but there is more to the Clubs success than them alone.

A formal history is documented in the book 'Ponsonby Rugby Club - Passion & Pride' ; however a glimpse of what the Club represents beyond the field is evident on the faces of  family members, supporters, administrators, mentors and friends at any game, after match function and Ponies gathering. 

As a collective, people contribute to the Ponies history and ensure the future is just as bright as the past for the next generation.
