“The Saints”

TATA Rugby Football Club (formerly Corus ) are a Welsh rugby union club based in Port Talbot. The club is a member of the Welsh Rugby Union and is a feeder club for the Ospreys.[2]
The club was historically known as The S.C.O.W (Steel Company of Wales) but changed its name to British Steel RFC in the late 1960s when the steel manufacture British Steel evolved from The SCOW. The name CORUS was adopted following the demise of British Steel but locally, the team is still known as "The SCOW".
The team plays at the sports ground at Margam (just off J.38 of the M4) which it shares with other sections - Cricket, Soccer, Bowls etc.
Although it could be considered as a "works side" traditionally most of its players have not worked within the industry but have been Margam and Port Talbot parishners.
Over the years there has been a mistaken belief that the steel industry itself has sponsored the team, though this is untrue. Since 1980, the club has been totally self-sufficient due to the work of the committee and sponsors.
Like many of other rugby clubs, during the earlier part of this Century, playing numbers started to dwindle and the Club successfully joined up with a local District side called St Josephs Old Boys RFC. This jump started the Club and they quickly moved up the leagues.
Since the formation of the professional era the club has lost its local player base but this is being effectively managed
