We also host competitive and social 7s sides during the summer.

Our coaches dedicate their time and expertise in guiding the Morris Women to foster camaraderie and achieve rugby excellence.

Throughout the year Morris Women can be found practicing at the Mennen Arena in Morristown, NJ on Mondays and Wednesdays, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Spring and fall home games are played at St. Clare's Pocono Road pitch in Denville, NJ.
