The J1 team in Lansdowne F.C. are our Senior 2nd XV, training together with the Senior 1st XV as one squad. All players benefit from competition for places as we take part in the same pre-season, training, gym sessions and review meetings throughout the season. This allows players to compete against one another and seamlessly step up to the 1st team when the occasion arises. The ultimate aim of the J1 team is to give players an opportunity to showcase their skills, in order to put their hand up for selection to the 1st XV and represent the club at the highest level.
The work ethic is very strong within our squad and the core pillar that success is built on. We compete as a squad and are all about teamwork, brotherhood, fighting for one another and playing as one unit. We play an exciting attacking brand of rugby, but for us everything starts and ends with our defence. We have strong connections with the U20 and J2 squads, acting as a pathway for players to progress their ambitions to play Senior rugby. Our playing squad is a diverse group made up of players from across Ireland and overseas, we’re always happy to welcome new players.
The Landowne F.C. J1 team has a proud place in the history of the club, most recently winning the Metropolitan Cup for the 16th time in a season where they were also crowned Metropolitan League Division 1 Champions, proudly securing the Double in the 150th year since the club was founded.
The J1 team competes in Division 1 of the Metropolitan League.
Training sessions are on Tuesday & Thursday evenings, with games played on Saturday or Sunday.
