The original site of the Grammar Rugby Football Club was at Ayr Street in Parnell. In 1996 negotiations were held with the Auckland City Council to move the club base to Shore Road. At this time, the club amalgamated with Carlton, and became Grammar Carlton Rugby Football Club at a senior level. The junior sections remained separate, and in 1996 Grammar Junior Rugby Football Club was formed as a standalone entity affiliated with the Grammar Carlton parent club.

Grammar Junior Rugby Football Club organises rugby for children from pre-school up to Under 13 grade. All teams are weight restricted which means children play against others of a similar weight.  The club relies on a part-time Operations Manager and the work of volunteers to ensure the success of each rugby season.  We are pleased to report that with over 330 playing members the club is thriving and the future is bright. We warmly welcome all newcomers to the Grammar Rugby community to share in our wonderful club culture.
