West Potomac Rugby

We wish all of the West Potomac Rugby Football Club, current and former players, WAGs and social members as well as our sponsors (Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company and Lorton Stone) a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Our thoughts are with those that serve our communities and nation and cannot be home during the holidays. We are proud to have a tradition of active duty military, veterans and public servants on the team.

Happy Holidays and Excedi Universum!

Fortunately we are a far more open minded club these days and have worked with an excellent Gay Mens Rugby Club and supported a women's shelter in the region...among other charities reflecting our belief in treating everyone off the rugby pitch with respect. On the rugby pitch is another story.
