A Rugby Club was first formed in Ruthin in the 1920s but this early club eventually folded in 1933 and was not reformed until the 1960s. Ever since then Ruthin has been one of the premier clubs in North Wales and has produced a number of players for North Wales and other representative teams. The list of Honours below highlight that the club had a hugely successful side in the 1970s and many of that great Ruthin team are still actively involved in the club, not least as the fathers of the current and recent first team. Ruthin returned to Division 4 North in the 2006-7 season after 2 years in Division 3 South East. The club were not relegated, but elected to return to the North Wales league in advance of a decision by the WRU that they would not have been able to play in the South Wales leagues in 2007. Ruthin had gained promotion to Division 3 in 2004 after winning the league in North Wales and the 2005-06 North Wales Cup win, the first for almost 30 years, highlighted the clubs leading position in North Wales. Having lost over 15 players due to injury, retirement and transfers at the end of the 2005-06 season, 2006-07 was one of rebuilding and a number of promising young players have emerged to take the club forward in the next few years. Winning the North Wales Cup again in 2007-08 was a great achievement for Ruthins young side.
