Welcome to West Potomac Rugby!

Founded in 1963, West Pot is one of the oldest active rugby clubs in the Washington, D.C region with a focus on Alexandria and Arlington. We attract many players with and without rugby playing experience who enjoy the club’s close-knit social fellowship and enthusiastic level of play. We are well known for our willingness to train new ruggers from scratch and field a Division III men’s side and a Summer 7’s team as well as an Old Boys (35 and older) side.

"Strength on the field. Courage in the scrum. Determination in the face of adversity. Peace among brothers. Sincerity in word and deed. Loyalty to the club. Beer! Perseverance in getting beer."
-Excedi Universum

A great day of rugby...West Potomac RFC won 16-12 over Washington Renegades. We started slow conceding all 12 points in the first 15-20 minutes. The pack pace picked up; the backs had some great breaks; multi-phase rugby with ball control...battled through a second half where we had 2 players yellow carded and played 13v15 for about seven minutes.

Best wishes for healing to Jason (broken nose), Scott (hamstring and then some), and the Hoover eyebrow gash. Congrats to Woody for his 1st rugby game!
