Rugby (League)
 
Wingham Tigers
 
Wingham and District Rugby League Football Club began life as a Rugby Union club just before the start of the 20th century. When the strictly amateur rules prevented an injured player from being able to claim compensation the club decided to switch codes. 
This set a trend for other teams in the area and NSW is still the heartland of the sport in Australia.
The Tigers play in Group 3 of the Country Rugby League and have won 9 Premierships (including 4 in Group 18)
 
The club has teams at First Grade, Reserve Grade and Under 18 levels and a Womens "Tag" Rugby team.
