Our History

Banwen Rugby Football Club is a rugby union team from the village of Banwen, South Wales. Originally known as Banwen and District they formed in 1947. The club presently play in the Welsh Rugby Union Division Three West Central B.

During the 2007/08 season Banwen RFC failed to raise a team on more than one occasion and were relegated to division five. All matches played against opposition in Division Three South West were declared null and void.

A resurrection and rebuild of the Banwen team happened in Season 14/15 with a new side starting up in Division 3 West Central C. A successful season saw promotion to Division 3 West Central B for the 15/16 season.

The original club badge is a shield split into three sections; two upper 'quarters' and a lower 'half'. In the top left quarter is a bog flower – symbolic of the flowers in the marsh between Banwen and Colbren. The top right quarter shows a tree and the lower half houses a white knight astride a horse.
