Scunthorpe Rugby Club is an English rugby union team based in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire. The club runs six senior sides, a ladies team, a colts and under 18s team and a full set of junior teams.[1] The club currently plays in Midlands Premier having been relegated from National League 2 North at the end of the 2016-17 season.


Scunthorpe Rugby Club was formed in 1929 and played its first fixtures in a field owned by a local farmer on the condition that the goal posts were moved after each game so that the animals could return to graze. From these humble beginnings the club progressed to a stage whereby it was able to move to its own ground, Heslam Park, in 1952.[2]
