Llantwit Major Rugby Football Club is a Welsh rugby union club based in Llantwit Major in Wales. Llantwit Major RFC is a member of the Welsh Rugby Union and is a feeder club for the Cardiff Blues.[1]

It is believed that rugby was played in Llantwit Major as far back as 1880, though the first recorded game was in 1889 against a team from Cowbridge. The club disbanded during the Second World War but reformed soon after and in 1962 gained membership to the Welsh Rugby Union.

Currently the club manages two senior teams, one Under 19 team and also has a full Mini & Junior section with its own separate management framework. There is also a large social membership that runs darts and pool teams in local leagues.
