Slava Moscow is a Russian rugby union club from Moscow. They participate in the Professional Rugby League, the premier rugby competition of Russia. The club is one of the strongest in the country though they struggle to compete against the more professional outfits from Krasnoyarsk and their near neighbour VVA Monino. They have a particularly strong amateur foundation built on a solid youth program and as such field far more local Russian players than the other top sides. They play in yellow and red.
