Cincinnati Rugby Football Club

The Cincinnati Rugby Football Club, known commonly as the Wolfhounds, is the Premier Rugby Club in Ohio. Founded in 1974, and sanctioned by USA Rugby, the Club fields competitive teams in Men’s Division 1 Midwest Premiership, Men’s Division III, Men’s Club Sevens, and Women’s Club Sevens.  A very active over-35 Greyhound group ensures the history and culture of our Club are embodied by each team.  Since inception the Wolfhounds remain one of only two teams in the Midwest Rugby Union to compete in Division I for their entire history.

2020 Fall Season

We at the CRFC are happy to announce that fall practices have resumed! We are dedicated to the safety of our players, coaches, and fans, and as such, we will be complying with all Covid-19 policies laid out in the Midwest Rugby Football Union's Return to Play Handbook, all other MWRFU Covid-19 Policies, and with Governor DeWine's recent executive order regarding contact sports during the pandemic. Practices will be held every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 PM at Brimelow Rugby Grounds. Our Covid-19 self-reporting form is located here, and it is mandatory that anyone planning to participate in any club events fill out that form each day prior to arriving at the facility. If you're interested in joining the club, please reach out to us through our Contact Us Form, and make sure to self-report before you come out to the facility. Our Fall Schedule is located here, Go Hounds!
