The club was founded in 1880 and became a full member club of the WRU shortly after. Throughout its history the Seaweeds have competed strongly in the Glamorgan area and although classified as a second class WRU club has competed well in the WRU Cup competitions against many so called 1st class clubs including the likes of Neath, Aberavon, South Wales Police and Ebbw Vale. One of its proudest moments came in 1972 when the club faced and beat Maesteg, one of the very first "giant killing" games.
Recently the club has enjoyed a renaissance with the selection of the youngest ever Welsh international player in Tom Prydie and Ryan Bevington, son of club stalwart Richard, being selected as part of the 2011 Wales World Cup Squad. Also with that squad was home produced senior analyst Rhys Long who is the son of another club stalwart, Dai.
