Voted Best WRU Regional Community Club 2016
The game of rugby is almost unique amongst sports for the camaraderie and good-will it fosters. Add to this the opportunities it provides for young, and not-so-young people to participate in an exciting and skilful team game and it is easy to see why the game is so popular.
We hope this website helps you to find out more about our club and we hope to see you at our clubhouse on Chippenhamgate Street, Monmouth, where you are sure to receive a warm welcome.
Founder Members of the Welsh Rugby.
On 23rd May 1873, Monmouth Rugby Club was formed, making the club one of the oldest rugby clubs in Wales. The game came to be played in the town through a master at Monmouth Boys School and it was a combination of older school boys and town players who initially established the Club. We continue to play both English and Welsh clubs, with most away fixtures within 40 minutes’ drive of Monmouth. The game of rugby is almost unique amongst sports, for the camaraderie and goodwill that it fosters.
Monmouth RFC Today
As the club has grown over the past few years, it has still managed to maintain the same ethos. The prime focus of the Club is player enjoyment, coupled with rugby skill, development and teamwork for players of all ages. Social skill development is also a key factor - learnt through camaraderie on the field and friendships off the field of play. New members and players are always welcome. We hope to see you at our Clubhouse headquarters, at Chippenhamgate Street, Monmouth, where you are sure to receive a warm welcome.
Our Senior Club provides the opportunity for players, young and not-so-young, to participate in an exciting and skilful team game. Our senior club is split into three playing categories - 1st XV, 2nd XV The Druids and our Youth Team.
