It's a massive year for Hawkesbury Agricultural College (HAC) Rugby Club, as it is set to celebrate its 130th year in 2021.

Formed in 1891, the club has a strong connection to its rich history; every player remembers when they put on the "Blood and Mustard".

Many celebrations will be held throughout the year, but none more important than the 130th Anniversary Ball to be held on May 15, when HAC hosts Blacktown.

HAC President John Mullinger said the Anniversary Ball will be celebrating all things College and will feature returning alumni.

"We will also have reunion games, with teams made up of players from the 70s/80s, 90s and 00s," he said.

"There will be great opportunities for our past players to come down and enjoy a day of rugby and have a bit of fun getting on back on the field."

Mullinger said that there are a good number of players returning for the upcoming season wanting to be a part of the club's 130th year.

"We're looking to put together a strong group of players, a mix of experience and youthfulness, that will be able to compete in all grades," he said.

The club will field four teams in the Suburban Rugby Competition; First, Second and Third Grades, and Colts (Under 21's).

HAC are always welcoming new players, with training under way on Thursdays from 6:30pm at the College Oval, Richmond.
