The Rugby

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” - Helen Keller

Rugby is at the heart of what we do as a charity to raise awareness and vital funds: the more we play, the more eyes will be aware of the charity and the more support we can give. 

Our rugby teams play in Rugby Against Cancer organised matches, third party events and at sevens tournaments.

Our teams are Barbarians-style from rugby clubs across the UK, and players come together to play for the cause on the front of their shirts. We celebrate diversity and our debutants, so please do get involved no matter which club or where you come from. Most of our fixtures are currently in London and the South of England, as we grow we are hoping to be able to play further afield.


Since the launch of the charity we have had a Men’s XV team and they have been a core at our charity events.

Prominent fixtures for our main Men’s side include;

 v Sid Street XV

 v Pacific Islanders Rugby Club

 v London Welsh Select XV

We are dedicated to keeping the team fresh and allowing new players for each match to play for a special cause. If you are interested in playing for our XVs side email our team manager with your details.


Our women’s team feature at our big charity events and we are looking to develop their involvement even more within the charity to help us reach new audiences.

The most prominent fixture for our women’s side is:

 v Pacific Islanders Rugby Club Womens

If you are keen to help us grow the Women’s side and get involved please email with your details.


An elite 7s team launched this year ahead of the Rosslyn Park Floodlit 7s Tournament.

After a successful first outing, the invite-only squad will grace the pitches of 7s tournaments where schedules allow.


Appearing at social and open tournaments around the UK during the Summer months our RAC7s Hummingbirds is open to keen 7s players who are in their off-season.


The versatile women’s RAC7s Hummingbirds team come together over the Summer months to compete in sevens tournaments.


We currently have no plans to enter any more sevens tournaments this year, however, if you are keen to join either of our RAC7s Hummingbird teams please email to be added to our player database if we enter any last minute events or ahead of next year.
