Welcome to Men's Rugby Club!

This student organization is reported as the oldest club on campus, fielding the inaugural team in 1967. Men's Rugby Club also claims to be the first team at UC Santa Cruz to call themselves the “Slugs”.

The UC Santa Cruz Men's Rugby Club fields two men’s teams.  Each side attempts to ground the ball beyond their opponents’ goal line while the opponents attempt to tackle the ball carrier. It’s that simple. This is the oldest tradition on campus. Traditional games are played against the likes of Stanford and UC Berkeley. Visiting teams have visited from England, Argentina, New Zealand and around the world. No experience necessary.
