The "00's" to Date

The 1st XV has maintained AIL status finishing 3rd in Division 2A in the 2012/2103 season. Banbridge is extremely proud to have three of its members who have represented Ireland; namely Tyrone Howe (also a British/Irish Lion), Simon Best and currently Rory Best (also a British/Irish Lion) who is the most capped Irish hooker and captain of Ulster for the 2014/15 season. Former Banbridge RFC Club Captain and capped Ulster scrum-half Ian Porter transferred to Connaught at the end of the 2013/14 season

The U-15 won the Bowl on 2013/2014 and the U-19 lifted their Cup and the Nutty Crust Trophy in 2013/2014 and a league and cup double in 2103/2104.
