Cardiff HSOB Rugby Football Club is a Welsh rugby union club based in Whitchurch, Cardiff in Wales. They club is a member of the Welsh Rugby Union and is a feeder club for the Cardiff Blues.

Cardiff HSOB RFC owe their creation from student pressure to play the game of rugby in Cardiff High School where football (soccer) had been the sport of choice. In 1921 a rugby game was played between the Old Boys and a school XV. They played for two seasons but disbanded after the loss of their playing field.

In 1928 the team reformed when a new playing ground was made available, and it is this date that the team take as their founding year. Their first match was surprisingly against the far more experienced and grounded Cardiff RFC at the Cardiff Arms Park. As with all clubs in Wales the team disbanded during both World War periods but have been playing continuously from 1928. Originally the club only selected former students from Cardiff High School, but open membership was allowed in 1966. Cardiff HSOB RFC plays in the Welsh Rugby Union, Division Four South East League.
