The history of WCOB RFC began in the summer of 1897
A group of Wellington College school boys, who were leaving school that year decided to keep the spirit and camaraderie of the rugby playing days together, with the formation of an “Old Boys” team, and so WCOB was formed. And for the next 94 years the club had a proud history and performed with distinction.
Wellington College Old Boys won the Jubilee Cup in 1927 and 1933 as well as the Hardham Cup in 1939, 1946 (shared with Wellington), 1966, 1979 and 1982 (shared with Victoria University.
In 1991 change was on the way, with the amalgamation of the Victoria University Rugby Club. With over two-hundred seasons behind it, the amalgamated club had a proud rugby heritage and strong sense of tradition. Over the years, the clubs combined have produced twenty-nine All Blacks, including two All Black captains - George Aitken in 1921 and Stuart (Stu) Wilson in 1983. The club's most recent All Blacks have been half-back, Jon Preston, midfielder Paul Steinmetz and centre Conrad Smith.
