Wellington Club Rugby Champions

In its short history Marist St Pat's has emerged as Wellington's second equal most successful rugby club since club rugby was first played on Athletic Park in 1896.

In the 123 years since 1896 Petone has easily been the most successful club affiliated to the WRFU with 35 outright and two shared club championships

In second equal position are MSP and former Athletic Club with twelve outright and two shared championships.

The Jubilee Cup trophy was presented by the WRFU in 1929 in recognition of its Golden Jubilee Year. The trophy symbolises winning excellence in Wellington Club Rugby.

During its 48 year history MSP occupies second outright position, once again behind Petone, as the club winning the most Jubilee Cups in the 90 year history of that prestigious trophy.

Petone has won the Jubilee Cup trophy 26 times since 1929 and MSP has won it 14 times since it was formed in 1971.

One could argue that in the 48 years MSP has contested the Jubilee Cup it has emerged statistically as Wellington's most successful club.

At the time of writing in the 48 years MSP has contested the trophy it has had a hand on the cup on average once every 3.43 years.

Since 1929 Petone has had a hand on the cup on average once every 3.46 years in the 90 years that it has contested the trophy.
