St Peters Rugby Football Club is a rugby union team from the district of Roath, in Cardiff, South Wales. The club plays their home games at the Harlequins Playing Field, located off Newport Road.[2] It is a member of the Welsh Rugby Union, and is a feeder club for the Cardiff Blues.[3]

The club regards its foundation year as 1886, although it is not until 1888 that the first recorded reference to the club can be found; this was in the regional newspaper, the Western Mail, and was against St. Margarets, also of Roath.[4]

One of the biggest results recorded by the club was beating Cardiff RFC 14-16 in the SWALEC Cup on 23 January 1993.[5]
