Merthyr RFC is one of Merthyr Tydfil’s oldest sports clubs, its first recorded game having been in 1876 at its original Plymouth Ground in Pentrebach. Its current home is at The Wern in Ynysfach, which recently saw a £1.13m expansion including the construction of a new 700–seater stand, all-weather pitch, floodlights, male and female changing rooms, weight training facilities and a dedicated youth centre.

In 2016-17, ‘The Ironmen’ achieved their most successful season to date, winning the WRU Principality Premiership during their inaugural season in the event. They also reached the semi-final of the SWALEC Cup.
