Doveton Steelers Rugby League Club is a not for profit Incorporated sporting club based in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Doveton Steelers was established in 2001 founded by a well-respected player and family man within the Victoria Rugby League community, Mark Lepou aka Sole, his dream was to create a family-orientated club that provided everyone from all walks of life an opportunity to participate and grow in the greatest game all.
Our club has a long and proud history of success both on and off-field. Over a period of 15 years, Dovetons growth started off slow and steady, creating that strong family base foundation as a solid senior club starting off with a 1st Grade and Reserves Mens team, followed by the 'Steelettes' our Womens Tag Team introduced in 2008.
In 2015 was the lastest milestone, with the birth of our junior side. We kicked off the season with a U16s team, which consisted with children of a few Senior players, this includes the founder's eldest grandchild Marlee Lepou and also coached by 'Sole's' 2nd eldest son Aja Lepou
