Rugby – M

The UCSD Men’s Rugby Team is a campus sports club and a registered United States of America Rugby Football Union team. We play in the Men’s Collegiate League, Division II of the Southern California Rugby Football Union and play against LBSU, USD, Claremont Colleges, ASU, Loyola, UCI, and Pepperdine.

In addition to playing all those teams during our regular season, we have a rich preseason with several tournaments. Annually, UCSD hosts the “Kings of the City” tournament, where UCSD takes on USD, SD State, and Point Loma for bragging rights as the best team in San Diego. Another preseason highlight is the annual alumni game, where the current UCSD starters take on the Triton greats of the past.

After a rough couple of years, realignment of SCRFU Men’s Collage division as put UCSD Men’s Rugby in a position to have one of their best seasons in the last decade. Under the leadership of coach and former All American Brian Kennedy the Tritons have high hopes for a successful season and competition in post season play.

We’re always looking for fresh talent.
