The club was founded in 1981. It came second in the Top East 10 league in 2004-5 and entered the Top League challenge series play-off.

The club won the Top East 11 league in 2006–07 and entered the Top League in 2007–08. The team was named Dynaboars (a conflation of "dynamic" and "boars") as part of their promotion to the Top League; however, they were demoted at the end of the season. The Dynaboars signed ex-Wales international and IRB World Player of the Year 2008 Shane Williams in 2012, retiring in 2014.[1]
