Building Strong Communities: Cequence Announces Title Sponsorship of SJRU Club Competition

Sydney, Australia – Friday, 23 February 2024

In an exciting move for the future of rugby in Sydney, Cequence, a pioneer in API security and bot management, today announced its title sponsorship of the Sydney Junior Rugby Union (SJRU) Club Competition. This significant investment underscores Cequence’s commitment to supporting the growth of the sport at the junior level, fostering a strong community spirit, and providing exciting opportunities for boys and girls ahead of the many international teams coming to compete in Australia over the next decade.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Cequence as the title sponsor of the SJRU Club Competition,” said Ben Gregory, General Manager of SJRU. “Their commitment to supporting the development of young players aligns perfectly with our vision for the future of rugby in Sydney. This sponsorship will play a crucial role in enabling us to expand our reach, attract more children to the sport, and provide them with the best possible experience.”

Glen Maloney, ANZ Country Lead at Cequence, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership given his own personal connection to rugby. “At Cequence, we believe in fostering positive change and building strong communities,” he said. “Rugby embodies these values through its emphasis on teamwork, discipline, and respect. We’re excited to be a part of this journey and to support the future generation of rugby stars as they develop and build lifelong friendships on and off the field. My formative years were spent playing in this competition and it led to my start in the tech sector. Cequence and I are very proud to be leading this partnership.”

The sponsorship comes at a pivotal moment for rugby in Sydney, with the highly anticipated arrival of the British & Irish Lions tour in 2025 and the Men’s (2027) and Women’s (2029) Rugby World Cups just around the corner. This increased interest in the sport presents a unique opportunity to inspire young people to get involved and develop a love for the game.

Cequence’s partnership will provide valuable resources for the SJRU, enabling them to:

  • Expand participation by encouraging more boys and girls to join the competition and experience the joy of rugby.
  • Enhance training through additional training opportunities for players and coaches to develop their skills.
  • Promote inclusivity by ensuring that all children, regardless of background, have the opportunity to participate in rugby.
  • Foster community to strengthen the already vibrant rugby community in Sydney


Ben Gregory, General Manager, SJRU: “Cequence’s support will be instrumental in helping us achieve our goals of growing the game, fostering inclusivity, and creating a positive and rewarding experience for all players. We are confident that this partnership will have a lasting impact on the future of rugby in Sydney.”

Glen Maloney, ANZ Country Lead, Cequence: “We are proud to partner with the SJRU and play a role in shaping the future of rugby, a sport has the power to teach valuable life skills, build character, and create lasting memories.
