Barnstaple Rugby Football Club was established in 1877 and is a rugby union club based in Barnstaple, Devon.[1] The club's first team play in South West Premier, the fourth tier of the English rugby union league system, following relegation from National League 2 South at the end of the 2017-18 season. The club colours are red and white and their nickname is Barum.[2] The first team are called the Chiefs, and there are also 2nd and 3rd teams (Athletic and Buccaneers), a number of youth teams from under-7s to under-18s (colts), and a girls side. The clubs rivals are Bideford Rugby Football Club, with a annual festive fixture played between the sides that attracts good crowds, despite the clubs currently playing in different divisions.

Jerry Collins, former New Zealand captain, played a game for Barnstaple's 2nd team while visiting family in the Devon town, and later wore the club's socks when playing for the Barbarians against South Africa on 1 December 2007.[3]

Ground

Barnstaple's ground of Pottingham Road is situated on the road of the same name, next door to Barnstaple Town Football Club. It is located in town on the north bank of the River Taw, and is about 20-30 minutes' walk from Barnstaple railway station, which is across the river to the south. The rugby ground consists of a main stand next to the club-house, a smaller stand on the opposite side, and along with the main pitch there are three alternative pitches for second XV and colts games, as well as a couple of smaller pitches suitable for younger age ranges/minis. Parking is available at the ground for 100+ cars but space can be limited so alternative parking nearby in town followed by a short walk may be necessary on busy days.

The current capacity of the ground is approximately 2,000, which includes around 575 seated (450 in the main stand, 150 in the stand opposite), with the rest standing. This capacity figure is representative of the sell-out crowd experienced against local rivals Bideford Rugby Football Club in the 2016 festive fixture between the two sides.
