Why Newport RFC
Newport RFC is a world famous club based at Rodney Parade on the banks of the River Usk.
In years gone by we have beaten New Zealand, Australia and South Africa (twice).
Newport Rugby Club can look back with satisfaction at what they have achieved during their history. Statistics don't tell the full story but when one sees that Newport have won: the Welsh Championship 11 times, South Wales Challenge Cup 5 times, Welsh Cup twice, Snelling Sevens 10 times, beaten South Africa (twice), Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Uruguay, provided 20 Welsh Captains, 31 British Lions, captains of England, Ireland, Canada, Fiji and Czech Republic and over 150 different Welsh internationals then they can justifiably claim to be one of the great rugby clubs of the world.
The challenge for the new Board of Directors and supporters alike is to promote Newport RFC. Not just to survive but to grow and develop Newport Rugby Football Club in a manner that will continue to reflect its magnificent history, albeit as a semi-professional club.
