History of the Potomac Exiles Rugby Club

The Potomac Exiles are a Division One Men’s Rugby Club, competing USA Rugby’s Mid-Atlantic Conference and located in the Washington DC Metro area. Our players come from all over the DMV – Maryland, Virginia and within Washington DC city limits. In the fall of 2014, two former rivals, the Potomac Athletic Club and Maryland Exiles, set aside the bruised shoulders and ribs to join forces.


A rich and rewarding history with National Championships to their credit follows both teams. However, after months of discussion, the teams decided to set aside the rivalry in an effort to improve the standard of play in the Mid-Atlantic.
