Abercynon Rugby Football Club is a Welsh rugby union team based in Abercynon. Today, Abercynon RFC plays in the Welsh Rugby Union Division Two East league and are a feeder club for Cardiff Blues.


The present club badge, designed in the early 1970s, depicts a swing bridge that used to span the river Taff to enable access to the colliery from the Carnetown area of Abercynon. Also on the club badge is the Glamorgan County coat of arms, and the coat of arms of an area bordering on Abercynon known as the Tynte.

Previous players include back to back Welsh Varsity winning legend Jack Perkins. After departing Abercynon, he spent a season with the Keys before spearheading Swansea RFC's campaign to return to the Welsh Premiership with his infamous chop tackles and his cobra-like traps.
