History[edit]

Fleur De Lys RFC reformed into their current guise in 1966. In 1992 they obtained full membership of the Welsh Rugby Union.[3]

The club since 1992 has had some notable success, with the senior team gaining successive promotions in 2002, 2003 and 2004. They finished 5th in Division One East in the 2006/07 season beating some high profile teams along the way including Pontypool. They were subsequently relegated the following season after finishing 11th and again in the following season from Division 2 East.

'Flower' as they are known in rugby circles bounced back to winning ways in the 2009/10 season and are the current Division 3 East Champions under Captain and Hooker Mark Davies. Former Captain and Hooker Craig Marshall is head coach and will be in charge along with Carl Thomas in 2010/2011 season.
