Men’s Rugby

Recognizing that rugby is not a common sport in the United States, the club gives new members a solid introduction to this fast-paced game.  No prior experience is necessary and in fact many of our members have never played the game before arriving at Keene State. The rugby club celebrated its 40th anniversary at Keene State in the fall 2012.  Come join a tradition of hard-hitting excellence!

Competitive “A” and “B” sides are fielded in the fall and spring against opponents from a competitive Division III league including Plymouth State, Johnson State, Castleton State, Colby-Sawyer College and New England College.

To inquire about joining the team and practice times, please e-mail the president, Jules Moore,
