The HRC Experience

HRC is the oldest, the biggest and, we reckon, the best Rugby Club in Finland. Since 1999 we’ve built a huge playing and coaching experience and have an unbroken, strong desire to play, and promote, the Ultimate Team Sport – Rugby!

The club was founded officially in May 1999 by Robert Basford, Bryan Roberts, Allan Davidson, Peter Eagling, Petri Kytöpuu
