1st XV

1st XV

In the 1st team at Hammersmith & Fulham we pride ourselves on the style of rugby we aim to produce week in, week out; providing ourselves and our opposition with great sport on a Saturday afternoon. Drawing on a large squad, competition for all positions is fierce, which we hope will push us to our goal of gaining promotion back into London 1. Our considerable success in recent years has built on the foundations provided by the other sides in the club who prepare newer squad members for the challenges of London league rugby.

We are a sociable side, this is an amateur club after all, and you will regularly find us after a game in The Larrik until the early hours, out on one of the well organised club nights and most definitely on tour!!

2nd XV

2nd XV

Doing battle week-in week-out in The Shield , the Hammers 2nd XV’s goal is not only to win by playing expansive and enjoyable rugby, but at being the best at everything we do - whether it be training, playing or socialising! As the 2nd half of the 1’s squad, when not striving for grand final glory, all 2nd team players can find themselves called up to the 1’s at a moment’s notice, so competition for spots is fierce. The only thing we enjoy as much as taking to the field is taking to the bar afterwards to talk about the victory, pay tribute to man-of-the-match and mercilessly punish the unfortunate Tin Man. Will you be one of these?

3rd XV

3rd XV

The Hammersmith & Fulham 3s are a social team who for 80mins on a Saturday become a well oiled rugby machine, we always go into a match knowing full well that each team member will be giving 110% for his team mates both on the pitch as well as at the pub on the other side!

The prerequisites for joining this squad are not only to be able to play some rugby but also to own a checked shirt.. Hand grenades anyone?

4th XV

4th XV

The 4th XV assemble each Saturday morning to play rugby the Hammers way and earn the right to go wide. Many players start their Hammers playing days in the 4s and are introduced to the playing strategies used throughout the club and also the concepts of Tin-man, debut beers ‘n getting loose!

Whether coming back from injury, new to the club or a regular weekend warrior, everyone enjoys the banter and no one is exempt from being ridiculed for various reasons for example; using an umbrella, wearing skinny jeans, possessing ostentatious playing boots, dressing like a wannabe farmer.

Ladies

Ladies

Since being founded in 2003 the Ladies team at Hammersmith & Fulham has gone from strength to strength, the latest being our promotion to Championship South East 2. We have three dedicated coaches who work hard on developing the skills and fitness of each and every player. We welcome players of all abilities from those who have never played rugby before to seasoned veterans, the one thing we all have in common is a love of the game and appreciation for good banter. We are forever living up to our reputation as London’s friendliest club, and aim to get everyone involved at training, games, and socials!

Ladies 2nd XV

As the ladies have worked their way up the leagues with last season’s promotion, we want to make sure that we are still as welcoming and attractive as ever for those of you who are curious, keen, and new to the game. With that end in mind, we have formed a second team this season to ensure that everyone can get some good game-time and can develop their skills at their own pace without being thrown in at the deep end. The Ladies teams will of course continue to train and socialise together!

Vets

Vets

A Season of Vintage Champagne rugby

Hammersmith & Fulham Vets were formed in 2005 to allow older members of the club to continue to play social rugby with opposition our own age, rather than having to chase 22 year olds around the pitch or hang up our boots.

Our players ages range from 35 to 63 and held a 4 year unbeaten record against Vets opposition. We aim to play up to 6 games of rugby a year, where everyone gets a game.

The team is also built on a strong social camaraderie, where the port before the game and the beers afterwards in the Wheatsheaf, are as important as the champagne rugby played on the field.
