Welcome to your website devoted to all things great and small for the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe RFC. The Knights are a 40 and over rugby side and we are competing at The CanAm Rugby Tournament in Saranac Lake Aug 2/3,2003. Our roster is composed of premier players from Newport News RFC, old Richmond RFC,Norfolk RFC, and Virginia RFC.
As of June 15th--we may have to rename our side The Virginia Reds--no "we are not morphing into a communist political cell!"---kit requirments for our jerseys necessitated the change. Appears we will be purchasing some of last years stock of authentic Canterbury Queenslands Reds at a friendly price. Please contact Cary now with your request for jersey size and , also, indicate if you need navy shorts and socks
