Ready to register for Hawthorn Touch7s? Great!

Touch7s is just $50 a term for 5 weeks of fun, skills and excitement!  See registration instructions below.

Registering for Hawthorn Touch7s

Registration and payment is via one of the 21st century’s greatest technological breakthroughs 😂🤣 RugbyXplorer, which ensures each player is properly registered and eligible for insurance.

Allow about 10 minutes and make sure you have an email address and a credit card for payment and your child’s date of birth, school, and approximate height and weight.

The registration process is pretty straight forward and there are step by step instructions below, the only traps are:

  • each player has to be registered and paid for separately – you can’t register all players in one transaction;
  • all players under 18 need to enter their school, height and weight, these are compulsory for all Junior player registrations (part of Rugby Australia’s size for age policy that applies to the contact version of Rugby, not really applicable for Touch7s, but a requirement none-the-less, so approximates are fine) – more info on Rugby Australia’s size-for-age policy can be found here;
  • if you have a child that is 4 or under they will not be able to register on-line, please contact us instead;
  • half way through the registration process you will be offered a ‘Saleable item – Touch7s Development Fee $7.50’ – this is a fee that goes to Rugby Australia, it won’t change the cost of your registration, just select ‘1’ and click ‘Next’;
  • if you’ve registered for any other Rugby Club this year, you’re registration for Hawthorn Touch7s will be treated by the system as a Club transfer and require clearance – you’ll get a screen telling you that and asking for a reason to transfer, just enter, ‘winter rugby to Summer Touch7s’ or equivalent and you should then receive an email okaying your transfer in the next 24 business hours and allowing you to complete the transfer process; and
  • there is a 2% processing fee, so a $50 registration will see your card charged $51.

OK, with that out of the way, follow our step-by-step instructions below to make registering quick and easy.

  1. Click on the image below to access the RugbyAU registration portal

2. Enter your email address and click ‘Continue’
Unless your email address is already recognised by RugbyAU you’ll need to click, ‘Sign me up’.

Then click, ‘Sign up’.  You’ll get a confirmation screen like this:


Check your email for an email ‘Welcome to Rugby Xplorer’ and click on the link to ‘Verify email’.

This will open a new page in your web browser asking you to set and confirm a password.


If all goes to plan you have now set up your Rugby Account and you should see your Rugby Account home page, like this, but with your details:


4. Link your other family members to your Rugby Account

Now link your family members to your account (you can set up a Rugby Account for each family member with their own email address, but you don’t have to and it’s probably easier just to do it through one Rugby Account).

Click on ‘Register’ on the left hand side of the screen and then click on ‘Find a Club’ under Play Rugby.

Register 1

If the name of the person you wish to register is not listed here, click ‘Link a new person’ and then click ‘Next’

Repeat this step for all family members you wish to register.

5. Now you’ve set up your Rugby Accounts, you can register to play for Hawthorn Touch7s!

Click on the family member you want to register by clicking on their name (a tick should come up against their name).   Then click on ‘Next’.

Register 3

You’ll be asked to ‘Enter a Club name’.  Type ‘Hawthorn’ and you should then have a few matches to choose from as below:

Register 4

Click on ‘Hawthorn Touch7s’ (the circle changes colour) and click ‘Next’.

On the next screen:


Select the following:

…and click ‘Next’.

6. Review your personal details
On the next screen review your personal details and click ‘Next’.

(Under ‘Additional Details’ you may get a message that the ‘Address not Working’ with an ‘?’ symbol next to it. If you click on that symbol, it should upload your address registered previously, or allow you to type in your address.)

Then add a head shot or click ‘Skip’ (top right).

Over the next couple of pages you’ll be asked for a few last details, including emergency contact details (in case the player is injured and we can’t speak with you directly) and the player’s school, height and weight.

Then you’ll get to this Screen, ‘Add a saleable item’.  This is a fee from Rugby Australia it won’t change the cost of your registration, just put a ‘1’ in the input box for a total of $7.50 and click ‘Next’.
