Men's Rugby at Lewes RFC

Join us
The Mens' Section currently runs two teams - the 1st XV play in the London & SE Division - London 3 South East, while the 2nds are in Sussex Shepherd Neame Leagues - Sussex Division 4 East (Asahi).

New players are always welcome to join this friendly and family-oriented club, where the social aspects are just as important as the playing achievements.

Training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Lewes RFC, starting at 7.00 pm, under coach Mike Stubbs who arrives from Scotland where he coached at Dundee Eagles and St Andrew’s University. Before his Scottish experience, Mike had spent some time in Sussex coaching at Brighton College, Sussex Under 17s and the Harlequins School of Rugby.

Stubbs will also be playing for Lewes. Having grown up in Ruthin in north Wales, Mike had previously featured for Sale Sharks A, North Wales and Pontypool before joining Worthing Raiders in 2011. But Mike’s most recent experience was at Dundee High Rugby playing in the Scottish Premiership, National League and the British and Irish Cup.

Matches are played on Saturday afternoons and supporters are encouraged to come and watch!

For more information or to find out how to join us, get in touch, contact Mike!
