Llangennech Rugby Football Club are a Welsh rugby union club based in Llangennech in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Llangennech RFC is a member of the Welsh Rugby Union.

Llangennech Rugby Football Club was established in 1885, when enthusiasm for the game had spread across local villages after Llanelli won the South Wales trophy.

Since then Llan has had a side that has played in every rugby season since 1885, with only the two World wars breaking the run.

There are currently two senior teams, the First XV play in the WRU Division One West and the Development XV play in the Carmarthenshire Tyre Services Championship. There are over 100 registered junior players, 30+ youth and 60+ senior players. Along with vice-presidents, patrons, members, officers and committee, the club membership is close to 400.[2]
