Brighton Rugby Club is one of the oldest rugby clubs in the country founded in 1868. As they were founded before the RFU they are one of the few clubs who are designated F.C. rather than R.F.C.

The club was formed mainly from players from Brighton College. The 1st XV play in London 1 South. The 2nd XV play in Sussex Spitfire 1.
