MORRIS MEN'S RUGBY

WELCOME TO THE HOME OF MORRIS MEN'S RUGBY

Click Here to Register for the Spring 2021 Season

The Morris RFC Men's team currently plays competitive rugby in the Empire GU Division. We offer full 1st XV and 2nd XV matches during the fall and spring seasons, and a full 7s program every summer, so there are plenty of opportunities to play rugby from the oldest head to the freshest newcomer. With players from all over the world and every walk of life Morris rugby offers something for everyone. Morris accept players of ALL levels so don’t be deterred if you have not played. The team will be more than happy to take you under their wing and show you the ropes, we were all beginners once! See the club contacts link to get in touch with us!

In addition to our regular spring and fall matches the Men's team undertakes two short tours each year. The world renowned Saranac 15s tournament in Lake Placid in September is used as a warm-up to the fall season, and every spring we travel to one of the many tournaments to which we are invited.

Throughout the year Morris Men can be typically found at the Mennen Arena on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7–9 pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
