THE OPPORTUNITIES

There has never been a better time to be involved in US college rugby as an international. The men's game has full professional opportunities with the new Major League Rugby (MLR) competition up and running.

The women's game has recently been taken under the NCAA emerging sport bracket. This combined with 'Title IX' which requires equal funding for men and women's college sports has enabled so much more investment & scholarships in the female game.
