We have a enthusiastic squad of around 25 boys that has been developing every season. We welcome new players of all standards, whether new to the game or experienced from school, our coaches will try to engage new players with the game and introduce them to the existing members of the squad.

We now train  starting 11.00am (meet at every Sunday and 6pm om Thursday evenings from September to May at Volac Park, Granchester Road, unless we are engaged in inter-club matches when timings and venues vary.

We play the full 15-a-side variation of Rugby with scrum and lineout both contested but no lifting. All other laws apply with positive play being rewarded. Gum shields are compulsory and Headgear is advisory due to the physical nature of the game. These are precautionary measures to make sure the children enjoy the game without risk.

Rugby is a game that provides discipline, structure and develops team spirit. We encourage good behaviour from both Children and Parents, especially when entertaining other teams or visiting other clubs for matches. The past couple of seasons have seen the squad tour to Ireland and Wales. Rugby tours help the boys experience different cultures, improve their game and develop their social skills.

Please feel free to come and try out with us. Either contact us below or join us at the club for a training session. Players of all shapes, sizes and standards are welcome as we are able to run 2 teams every week, the 1st team and a development team. Parents are also welcome to help with Coaching, Organisation and Admin.
