Rugby East

Twitter Handle: 

The Rugby East Conference has a long and proud tradition of excellent college rugby. The Conference also had ambitions to grow in numbers, and the dominant collegiate rugby competition on the east coast did just that by adding Buffalo University, Iona College, and St. Bonaventure University to its ranks.

Rugby East’s Army, Kutztown, and Penn State have been three of the most consistently capable rugby programs in the country in recent history, while Wheeling Jesuit is a young, up-and-coming varsity program. That being said, neither of the three newcomers to Rugby East are expected to compete for a Conference title this season, but the move up in competition should improve those teams’ player development and recruiting in a hurry, making Rugby East stronger – top to bottom – moving forward.
