About

Founded in 1972 by students, our team is a founding member of the elite collegiate division, D1A, and competes in the Rocky Mountain West division. We play notable teams such as CU Boulder, BYU, Colorado State, Air Force, Utah State, Utah Valley, and New Mexico. Our rugby program has had a heck of lot of success based on building very tightknit cohesive teams that play with passion for the game and for their brotherhood.

Your support on Giving Day provides academic scholarships for players on the team, helping them cover their costs of attaining a high quality education at UW and helps support them so they can represent UW on the rugby pitch!    

Here are some of our accomplishments:

  • National Championship runner-up in 2000,
  • three National Final Four teams, and
  • eight National Sweet 16 teams.

In 2016 and 2017, we represented the Rocky Mountain Conference at the College Rugby National Championships.

Our players have achieved the following:

  • five USA Eagles—players who have represented our country in international play,
  • nineteen All-Americans, and
  • two players invited to Olympic Training Center in San Diego.

Thank you for supporting UW's long tradition of Men's Rugby!
