We enthusiastically encourage new players to join the team. While rugby experience is welcomed, we’re also willing to teach novices all the ropes they can handle. We firmly believe that one of the key elements to a successful rugby team is trust. Trusting your fellow players creates a web of support, which also fosters challenge and unlimited skills growth.

Practices (during the playing season) are Tuesdays & Thursdays 7-9pm at the Poole Road Rugby Complex.
