In 2017 Easts are celebrating their 70th Anniversary.
Easts was founded in 1947 under the name Brisbane State High School Old Boys before going on to become the Eastern District Rugby Union Football Club in 1949. Since then the Tigers have won the Hospital Cup on four occasions, in 1997, 1999, 2008 and 2013. In both 1984 and 1999 Easts won the Welsby Cup and Horsley Cup, while they have also claimed the Doughty Shield on five occasions (1987, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2009). Following their 2008 Premiership success, Easts went on to become Australian Club Champions by defeating Sydney University. In their history 11 players have received Premier Rugby player of the year honours, their most recent being Matt Brandon in 2012. A total of 23 players that have played for the Tigers have also gone on to wear the Green and Gold jersey for either the Wallabies, Australian 7s, Australian U20s, Australian U18s or the Wallaroos teams.
