Rugby union is a game for everyone: big lads, small girls – thinkers, sprinters – veterans, youngsters.
Rugby is about taking part, having fun and keeping active. No matter if you’re a newbie or want to get back into the game, Harlow Rugby Club has a team to suit you and help you enjoy your rugby playing experience!
From first-time minis to die-hard veterans, there’s a place in this Harlow rugby family for everyone.
We asked some of our players ‘Why Rugby’?…
‘I like rugby because it feels like the adrenaline pumps through my veins when I play and watch it. Harlow Rugby Club has a great post-game atmosphere because it’s great to get a hot dog and talk with my team after the match.’
Sam Wix, Under 12’s (20/21)
- Why do you play rugby?
I was introduced to rugby at a young age, ruggerbugs, mini rugby and now youth rugby I always liked tackling my brother and being better at it than him, although he would debate that!
- What is it you love about the game?
Running, tackling, scoring tries all of it really!
- What is it you like about our club?
Great pitches, great coaches and people
- Anything else you are missing about rugby?
Missing rugby like crazy in lock down, running or fitness sessions just aren’t the same and I can’t wait for it to come back
- Anything else you would to say about rugby?
Great team mates and good fun

My rugby sonnet
I play 4 Harlow u15 team
With Sunday matches and Wednesday train
It is fun as it can be like a dream
Sometimes when we play it can start to rain
Work hard, play hard, have fun with friends
The teamwork, the laughs can never get old
It is a real shame when it has to end
The spectators often shiver with cold
We play our sport with courage, grit and passion
While driven by success and joys of winning
Red and green, our team colour fashion
Teamwork and fun are what’s underpinning
Rugby is the funniest sport ever!
I could play forever!
Tasha Blunden, Girls U15’s (20/21)
Because it is exciting and you don’t know what is going to happen next. That’s why I love it. The coaches are very supportive. The club is a nice place to train and everyone is friendly. I have made some good friends.
