Howe of Fife RFC is a rugby union club based in Cupar, Fife, Scotland and is part of the Scottish Rugby Union. It was founded in 1921, and they play in blue and white hoops.[1]

The team currently play in Scottish National League Division Two, the third tier of Scottish club rugby.

Previously the club had two undefeated seasons in 2007 and 2008 earning them rights to promotion. The 1st XV are currently coached by Garry Horne and John Lathangie. The captain is Chris Mason. The Howe run teams from Primary 3 level up to under-18 colts level. Many players have gone on to represent Fife, Caledonia and Scotland at age grade level, with a handful going on to represent professional clubs. In 2007, current first XV Captain Chris Mason led the under-18 Howe of Fife squad to a unique treble winning both the school (as Bell Baxter High School) and the Club Scottish cups as well as the Scottish schools sevens cup. A number of the players involved in that team now play for the senior side.

In November 2017 several of the clubs players received 347 total weeks of suspension for incidents that took place the previous year in which new players were sexually assaulted by having a bottle inserted into their anus after a match.[2][3]
