Exeter Engineers RFC is an amateur RFU affiliated rugby club. We are a casual, social and friendly rugby side that welcome all students. The club was founded by Engineering undergraduates in 2006 however, since 2010, it has been open to all degree disciplines and now boasts a membership base of over 120 students.

Exeter Engineers RFC offers training and development to rugby players of all abilities having coached new comers to international 7’s players. The club appeals to students due to its competitive yet social ethic with tough fixtures followed up by fun inclusive socials. Training is on Wednesdays between 2pm-4pm. EERFC boasts 2 teams: a First XV squad competing in the Devon Merit League and a more relaxed, Social XV who play regular friendlies against local Devon sides. There is an opportunity for competitive game time for all.

The aims and objectives of the club are to promote an inclusive rugby club which is open to students of all abilities from any degree discipline. We offer fun, developmental training sessions and competitive matches for all players. This forthcoming season we want to get as many people back on the pitch playing the sport so many of us love after a long 18 months without rugby!
