Jed-Forest Rugby Football Club are a rugby union team who are based at Riverside Park in Jedburgh. One of the world's oldest and most famous clubs, the team was founded in 1885 and currently play in BT National League Division 1 and the Border League (the oldest established rugby union league in the world).
The club hosts an annual 7’s tournament around May of each year, which is traditionally the last of the Kings of The 7s Tournaments. This always guarantees an exciting end to the season with the winner of the series often not known until after our final.
