Club Banco Hipotecario de la Nación, mostly known as BHN Rugby, is an Argentine rugby union and field hockey club based in Villa Celina, in La Matanza Partido of Greater Buenos Aires. The team currently plays in the Torneo de la URBA Grupo III, the third division of the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires league system.
The club is part of the Banco Hipotecario, the most important mortgage loan bank of Argentina. The institution also contributes with the non-governmental organization "Rugby Sin Fronteras", which spreads a message of inclusion through rugby, emphasizing the fair play and the gentlemanliness of the game.
In 2011 some representatives of RSF (with former Puma Marcelo Loffreda as their most notable player) travelled to South Africa to play a match there with the objective to pay tribute to anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela. The organization has also an inclusive plan to encourage down syndrome children to practise the game of rugby, named "Rugby Inclusivo".
