Team of the week
Northampton Outlaws RFC are an inclusive rugby team.
A warm welcome is given to any new players and supporters regardless of ability, experience, fitness level, age or sexual orientation.
Racal Decca RFC
Host club Racal Decca RFC are the smallest rugby club in the world!A bold claim, however, as a one team club without a clubhouse, pitch or fixed abode, 20+ regular season games played each year and tours happen both overseas and throughout the UK it’s a good claim! And most of all there is passion for the game!
Whether it is taking to the field with less than 15 players; bringing together players from 18 to 65 years of age with different abilities and experiences of the game; as well as from many different nationalities and social backgrounds, uniting as one team for the love of the game is at the core of everything we do.
Streatham & Croydon 3rds
The Black Horse RFC are a group of rugby enthusiasts based at The Black Horse Pub in Hertford.
The Rugby Team was founded in 1977 by 3 friends of this famous watering hole. The club has gone from strength to strength and is one of the only pubs affiliated to the RFU. The team plays a full calendar of fixtures throughout the year and organise social events for the players, supporters and family members.
New members are always welcome regardless of previous playing experience! We take our rugby seriously, but seriously enjoy our socials! The Black Horse Rugby Team also try and organise a tour. The team were welcomed by The Broadland Great Yarmouth Rugby Club in 2014 and enjoyed a close win, 21-20.
Malta Marauders is Malta’s only veterans rugby team, and was set up in 2003 by players over 35 years old from the four local senior teams in existence at the time. The team was formed in response to a growing demand to offer similar opposition to touring Veterans teams visiting Malta.
Since then, Marauders has hosted sides from many countries, including UK, France, Spain, Sweden, Israel, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy and the UAE. Famous visiting opposition has included London Welsh, Rosslyn Park, Toulouse and Stade Francais. Malta Marauders is comprised of both Maltese and expatriate players, and one of the main objectives of the team is to play veterans rugby in as many different countries as possible. Marauders have taken part in the Dubai International Veterans 10s for the last three years, reaching the final of the Plate in 2013.
Civil Service Barbarians
The Civil Service Barbarians were formed as a works team by club founder Ashley Robinson in early 2006, inviting his friends and colleagues in the Immigration Service to play, regardless of their playing ability, the only proviso being their love of rugby. From this base the club’s membership slowly grew through Westminster and Whitehall, with occasional friendlies for 4 years. Eventually the club had enough players to venture in to regular games through the Middlesex Merit Leagues where it has remained since.
We are the official rugby team of the United Kingdom Civil Service and our players and supporters are from all parts of government and the public sector. In 2014 we established a new home at Whitton Park, and we continue to seek to demonstrate the welcoming atmosphere and never say die spirit in all our games and events.
“Friendship, Unity, pride: This is Civil Service Rugby”.
