Savers Rugby Union team began life as Manly Surf Rugby in winter 1909, though members of Manly Surf and Life Saving Club were playing in local teams well before that date. The current earliest formal written proof of the date is the programme for the Reunion Ball which was held in 1919, after the First World War. The header on that programme reads Manly Surf Rugby A.D 1909.
