This spring, Purdue Rugby will be fielding competitive 15s and 7s sides. While the 15s side works to develop new players, the 7s side has some lofty goals. With 7s coach Matt Wagner returning after last year's 4th place BTU finish, Purdue 7s sets its eyes on a BTU Championship this spring and qualification for the Collegiate Rugby Championship tournament in Philadelphia at the end of May.


Purdue Men's Rugby is a Division 1-A program in the Big Ten Universities Rugby Conference. Each fall, we compete in a 15s season against a strong conference schedule with the goal of winning a BTU Title. In the spring, we have a development season for 15s players coupled with a competitive 7s season filled with BTU tournaments.

It's never too late to begin playing rugby. We welcome players with all levels of experience - from those who have never played to those who are ten year veterans.
