At Samurai Rugby Football Club our mission is to be the world’s best 7s rugby club in terms of our talent cultivation, performances and development of the sport. We want to provide opportunities for as many aspiring players, coaches and managers as we can. We are a nomadic club, in that we have no home ground, but we are famed for the striking kit, professional attitude and on-field flair. Samurai RFC is the most prestigious, recognised, and feared team on the domestic and international 7s circuit.
Achieving this is no mean feat considering we are unable to train together! Our coaches, many of whom are the most experienced on the 7s circuit, are adept at preparing teams to play in 7s competitions. With only 4-6 games per competition to showcase their skills this is key to our success. We have a proven track record of success over the last 25 years, supporting the development of countless players who have progressed to achieve international honours all over the world.
The squads selected for each tournament consist of a balance of younger players, with the potential to perform at the highest levels of the game, and experienced players needing to regain match fitness to prepare for international competition. Alongside these we also develop coaches and competition support staff who aspire to work with representative teams too. Identifying and supporting talent is important, but we do so with a win/loss ratio which is the envy of the sport.
It is considered a huge honour to play for Samurai RFC, even for professional players, none of whom get paid as we are a non-profit organisation who survive solely on donations and sponsorship.
Professional teams, clubs and unions have recognised our achievements and we have a fantastic rapport and relationship with junior clubs and coaches through to international unions.
