Charles River RFC is a senior club based in Boston, MA. Both teams are part of the New England Rugby Football Union (NERFU) and compete in USA Rugby's CR3. The women compete in NERFU Division II and the men play in NERFU DIII.

We are committed to upholding to good hard rugby play and social traditions that are core to this sport we love.

Rugby is great. The players don't wear helmets or padding; they just beat the living daylights out of each other and then go for a beer. I love that.
