  1. The Rugby Club was formed in 1927 by 6 YMCA members, who had up until then been playing their rugby for Huddersfield RUFC. The ground and clubhouse is still on the original site although there have been a number of changes since then.

    We currently have four senior teams with the 1st XV playing in North 1 East.

    We have also run a junior section since 1971 which provides a safe and fun environment for boys and girls between the age of 4 and 17.

    Both the senior and junior sections are always on the look out for new players and we welcome any new recruits with open arms. We are a rugby union club that provides a warm and friendly environment with a real sense of community.

The present main pitch was opened in 1989 with the Lawrence Batley Stand following in 1996.
