The CRICC Harlequins

Cardiff High School Old Boys RFC was established in 1927, and like the name suggests, was a club for former pupil of Cardiff High School. It became an open club in the 1960's and in the 1990's the name 'Cardiff Harlequins' was introduced by the late Vernon Pugh QC, partly due to the introduction of national league rugby.

The Junior section of the club consists of under 14 to under 16 teams, run in partnership with CRICC, a Welsh-speaking rugby club in Cardiff. CRICC run sides from under 8, and the under 14, 15 and 16 teams play under the name of CRICC Harlequins.

Bi-lingual information about CRICC can be found on their website

 Code of Conduct

The Club adheres to the WRU Code of Conduct which covers Players, Parents, Spectators and Coaches. Extracts of the Code are displayed around the Club and a full copy is kept behind the bar and is found on the CRICC |website- Everyone is encouraged to abide not only by the letter but also the spirit of the Code which will be actively enforced by all Club Officers.

After Match

All Players, Supporters and Parents are asked to remain in the Club (home or away) for at least 45 minutes after the match ends. This will help generate the kind of atmosphere and camaraderie that differentiates rugby from other games. For away matches we would also expect all Players, Supporters and Spectators to show the same courtesy to our hosts as we would expect from them.

Club Membership

All Parents and Supporters of the Youth and Junior teams are urged to become Social Members of the Club. This will help us to comply with the Licensing Laws and will also ensure a greater sense of involvement and interest. Fully paid up Members are entitled to put their names forward for the International Match Ticket Allocation and they can also book the Clubhouse for any private social function without a booking fee. Members are also entitled to vote at the Club AGM and can therefore influence Club policy on a whole range of issues. We want you to become part of the Club and enjoy its facilities as well as supporting your particular teams.
