WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL SWANSEA GLADIATORS RFC WEBSITE
The Gladiators XV is an integrated rugby team of people with disabilities and their friends.
From the beginning our motto has been “Friendship through Sport” and we have built our success on developing ability where only disability was noted before. Hard work has brought us well earned rewards.
Members of the team come from a variety of backgrounds and have a wide range of learning disabilities e.g. downs syndrome and cerebral palsy. Some have a sensory or physical disability. In 2006 the Gladiators went to develop a now fully fledged Junior Section.
The senior team plays full contact rugby with passive scrums.
The courage and commitment shown by these individuals to overcome their disabilities and take part in the Welsh national game sets an example for everyone involved.
