The Anti-Assassins are a north west based ‘invitation only’ side founded over 60 years ago and have played many Northern Clubs in the intervening period, as well as travelling overseas on many occasions. They play a variety of fixtures either to celebrate special club events, or to raise monies for established charities, as well as helping to develop rugby football at leading schools.
