The Jungle Crows was started in 2004 by a small group of rugby nuts living in Kolkata, we've grown over the years to now have men's and women's teams competing at every level across India.
We play rugby as.......
Kolkata Jungle Crows
This is where the rugby all began back in 2004. We've gone on to play rugby all over India. Won the Calcutta Cup, Kolkata's top league competition four times. Won the Centenary Cup. Played in every possible 7s we can from Chennai to Kashmir. Our U17s are national champions. We've had a load of men and women play for India. We play on Crow Field in the heart of the Maidan.
The team from the rugby mad villages of Saraswatipur in the north of West Bengal. These children love their rugby and play a quick as lightning version of the game honed on their very own riverside beach and on grounds next to elephant filled forests. And that Leopard is no mythical beast, they have leopards wandering around, stealing the odd animal.
Our development team that plays a full part in the Kolkata season. Most Jungle Crows graduate from the Hazards and a few return there to. It's always a great battle when the Hazards take on the Crows and the game doesn't always go to form.
Racing are a part of the family. When several of our players landed up living and working in Bengaluru (Bangalore) what else would they do but start a small new rugby team. They've now played in a couple of 7s and are all about having a fun time while playing some good rugby.
