Seven Sisters RFC is a rugby union club representing the village of Seven Sisters, South Wales, playing in the Asda Division 3 South West league of the Welsh Rugby Union. Founded in 1897, the club is in the middle of what was once richest source of coal in Britain, if not the world. The club are members of the Welsh Rugby Union and is a feeder club for the Ospreys.

During The 1950's and 1960's, when touring teams came to play Seven Sisters they would often be given a tour of the colliery prior to playing a match. It was reputedly common practice that when they were lowered down the shaft, the winding man would deliberately allow the cage to drop like a stone before applying the brake at the last moment. Few touring teams won their matches.

The club has got stick in the past from other teams about the name of the village. But it could have been worse. Initially, Evans-Bevan had wanted to name the pit after his first daughter, we would have looked pretty silly called Isobella RFC

The home ground is Maes Dafydd.

Seven Sisters RFC were relegated in the 2006-07 season from Division Two West into Division Three South West of the Welsh National Leagues.
