We strongly recommend that all active club members review our Standard Operating Procedures and become familiar with the ways of our rugby club. The "SOP" is inspired by past foul-ups and resides in the everlasting hope that the current edition of the RFC will be the best of all time.



The Zen Rugby Primer

Evolution of the Zen Rugger

The ruggers toughest opponent is always himself

To risk nothing is to risk everything

Every moment is an opportunity to start again

If we were sensible, we would be zen ping pong players not zen ruggers. Then again, if we were always sensible our amphibian forebearers would have never made it out of the warm comfortable mud. We would still be amphibians unable to play ping pong.

Never underestimate your capacity to endure and conquer.

Tackle hard and go in peace mates.
