Women's club game

Women’s rugby is rapidly growing across the South West, with Devon now having nine teams registered in the RFU women’s competition leagues, with many more in development.

All teams across Devon are always keen to hear from new and returning players, and if you would like to get involved in women’s rugby you can find links and contact persons for clubs within the county.
