Budapest Exiles RFC is a Hungarianrugby club in Budapest. They are the currently champions in the Hungarian Extra Liga. The club used to be confined to expatriates, but since 2000 Hungarian players have been welcomed to join.
The club was founded in 1991 by Thomas Bain (the ball) and Neil Curray (the men). They were rapidly followed by Nick Langford (the kit) and Jean-Claude Fédou (the pitch), who both had significant management skills. Other players played a prominent role in the launching such as Tom Howard (the logo) and Mike Caroll (more men). The team had a steep initiation curve that culminated in the drafting of the Statutes. Bain insisted on the educative role of the team at the national level, and Niel Curray ended up advising the referees country-wide. The sport was very young in Hungary, it was difficult to get complex rules such as the off-side rule respected on the pitch.
It later merged with Yeti RK, a club from the nearby village of Leányfalu.
