Men's Rugby

Rugby Team


The Mooesmen Rugby team is the oldest club sport on NMU's campus and is steeped on tradition since 1979. NMU Rugby has built a reputation for themselves in the Michigan and Wisconsin Rugby Unions for their rough and "no mercy" style of play. Anyone interested in the sport is encouraged to come out and play.  Most players have no previous experience but pick up the game quickly. The Moosemen pride themselves on their competitiveness and team unity. The team is  involved in community events, including the UP 200 Dogsled race. Any students or fans are urged to come find out what the infamous Moosemen are all about.
