Edinburgh Northern Rugby Football Club is a rugby union club in the Scottish Rugby Union, located at Inverleith Park, by Stockbridge and Fettes in the centre of Edinburgh, playing in the East of Scotland Regional Leagues.

Founded in 1920, Edinburgh Northern has a fine tradition of being one of the friendliest clubs in Edinburgh. The club's playing colours are Navy Blue and Old Gold.

The Club regularly fields two XVs in competitive regional leagues and also has an additional 'Over 35's' team, the Gentlemen of Northern, for players who wish to continue playing in their latter years.

Northern host one of the city's largest annual rugby 7s tournaments every April, which attracts entrants from all over the UK and hold an excellent reputation as a host for touring clubs from all Great Britain, Ireland and Europe visiting Edinburgh.
