Beddau Rugby Football Club has flown the flag of community sport with distinction for 125 glorious years. During that time they have scaled the peaks of rugby history, claimed an enviable amount of silverware and produced some truly world ­famous players.

This is a remarkable tribute to a club that has flourished throughout the decades in an ever -changing world. Beddau RFC has witnessed unimaginable developments in industry, housing and population across the region. As one of the few constants in the village, the role Beddau RFC has played within its own community is incomprehensible.

The Club has trained and produced scores of exceptional players and teams, bringing glory to the proud village it represents. It has also played a pivotal role as a centre for the community, offering a range of facilities, festivities, events and activities for all ages to enjoy. This is the story of a close-­knit village rugby club and explores its triumphs and tragedies.
