Welcome to our club

This rugby club seeks to play competitive rugby at the highest level possible. The objects are to introduce, establish, teach, promote, encourage, understand, and extend the game of Rugby Union Football within CSUMB and connect with other schools and build sportsmanship. Our teams will represent CSUMB and be ambassadors of collegiate rugby in the United States. 

Students will be able to learn the sport by participating in scrimmages, games, and tournaments. The teams will play the game of Rugby Union Football according to the International Rugby Board “Laws of the Game”, in a sporting spirit, and by observing fair play at all times.
