Club Description:

The University of Utah has a proud tradition of rugby dating back to the 1970’s.  Since 2002, Utah has reached the final four in the national championship four times, and the elite eight every year but one. We continue that tradition today, with both 7’s and 15’s competing at the elite levels against such rugby powerhouses as Cal Berkeley and BYU.  The 2015 season concluded with us taking 4th place nationally in the 7’s National Championship and finishing 6th nationally in 15’s as National Tournament Semi-Finalists.  In 2011 we took the Bronze Medal in the 7’s National Tournament and were USA Rugby National Tournament Semi-Finalists in the same year.  2010 gave us a crown jewel of being the 7’s National Champions.  If you are interested in adding your rugby talents to this storied group, learning to play rugby or are anywhere in between, there is a place for you with us.
