As an amateur but ambitious community club Westcliff strive to offer and deliver senior rugby for players of all abilities whilst maintaining strong community links and upholding and promoting the games core values.

The development and progression of players through our youth system is the bedrock of our senior set up and has allowed the club in recent years to establish itself as the foremost club in the county. The 1st XV has become a much respected and highly competitive side at the pinnacle of regional rugby now playing in the National 2 South Division and regularly outperforming semi-professional clubs in and around the national league structure. The 1st XV are underpinned and supported by a successful 2nd XV and our other senior sides provide a platform for players of all ages abilities and backgrounds in the game to develop and enjoy their rugby in the manner that best suits them.
