Rugby

Ross-on-Wye Rugby Club is located just on the edge of town at Greytree where young and old players of all abilities are made welcome.

One of the oldest rugby clubs in the world, Ross Rugby Club formed just 2 years after the RFU had its first meeting to agree on a standardised set of rules back in 1873. There are plenty of opportunities for players and members of the local community to come down and enjoy either playing for or supporting their local rugby teams. They currently put out two men’s senior sides on a Saturday afternoon with the 1st XV playing in the Gloucester League 2nd division and the 2nd XV playing in the Gloucestershire Merit League 3. The ladies’ touch team is ever expanding and play tournaments on Sunday afternoons in the Midlands Touch League. There is also a junior section who play or train every Sunday between September and April.

The rugby teams are very sociable and their headquarters are based at the friendly local pub, The Drop Inn, Station Street HR9 7AG where they have a big screen for live sports plus darts, skittles and pool.
