Salisbury RFC is a thriving Rugby Club with over a thousand members. For over 100 years the club has provided rugby and social opportunities for the people of Salisbury and the surrounding areas. 

The youth section has an impressive track record of producing international players such as Richard Hill (England, World Cup winner, British & Irish Lion), Poppy Cleall (Current England Ladies no. 8) and Mike Brown (England Full Back). In March 2019, both Josh Gray and Xavier Hastings were selected for England U18 in the Six Nations match against Scotland. They also both played junior rugby for Salisbury and both were in the team that won the U14 Dorset & Wilts Cup in 2015. 

Director of Youth Rugby at Salisbury RFC, Steve Allen, said: “Nearly 400 junior boys and girls aged from 6 to 18 train and play regularly at the club, developing a love for team sport, staying active, having fun and making friends for life. We are delighted that NFU Mutual has chosen to sponsor our Junior and Colt teams, to help the purchase of their match day kit, and support the continuing development of youth teams within the club.” 

Agent at NFU Mutual Wessex, Simon Hedges, has a long association with Salisbury RFC.
