Mens Rugby: Contacts

Medway Rugby Football Club fosters the great traditions of amateur rugby. Our club colours are the wonderful scarlet and gold shirts we all know and love. Medway is based in Rochester, Kent and the Club has access to superb facilities at our Priestfields ground.

The Club fields six men’s sides. From the ‘senior’ pod the First XV play in the ultra competitive London South East 2 and our Extra First XV compete in the Kent Invicta 1 League. From our ‘development’ pod, the Development Squad play in Invicta 3 (East) and our Development Extras play in the Dragon Fire 5 League. Finally, from the ‘social’ pod our fifth team competes in the Early Bird 6 (West) merit leagues and our Vets play in the Evergreen Trophy and various other competitions during the course of the season.

The Club has attracted many new players, drawn to us by our whole Club ethos, excellent facilities, quality coaching and thriving social calendar.

Taff and his team are keen to hear from any new player. You will join a great bunch of guys who enjoy their rugby both on and off the field. Please call Taff on 07989 566848 or email him on or come down to the club on a training night – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30pm until 9pm.

We look forward to welcoming you as a player or as a supporter to Priestfields, home of Medway Rugby Football Club.
