Description:
The WA Reds are a rugby league football club based in Perth, Western Australia. They are currently controlled by the Western Australia Rugby League, and have a junior team in the S. G. Ball Cup Competition.

The Reds entered a state of limbo for the next decade but were revived as a lower-level club in 2006 by the WARL and ARL, under the name WA Reds.
