The Harvard Rugby Football Club is a collegiate rugby team at Harvard College. Though rugby style "carrying game" with use of hands permitted (as opposed to "kicking games" where hands were not permitted) between Freshmen and Sophomores were played in 1858[2] the rugby team was not founded until December 6, 1872. [3] Harvard team is the oldest Rugby team in the United States.[4] [5] With around 60 members, Harvard Rugby is one of the largest club teams at Harvard. In past years, the team traveled to Berkeley, California for the National Tournament (Top 16) after having taken the Ivy League title.

Teams

Men's Team

Though Harvard NCAA athletic teams compete in the Ivy League, since 2009 Harvard Rugby team has competed in the Ivy Rugby Conference.[6][7] Predating the formation of Ivy Rugby Conference (where each of the eight men's rugby teams played each other over the course of a semester), each spring, from 1969 through 2004, Brown University rugby team hosted the Ivy League Rugby Tournament Championship at their campus.[8] Harvard has won the Ivy League Tournament Championships in 2007, 2003 and 1994 and were National Champions in 1984, as well as National Championship runner-up to Cal-Berkeley in 1981 and to Air Force in 2003. In 2009, the men joined a newly established Ivy Rugby Conference that kicked off as a separate collegiate conference that operated as its own union (replacing the need to be part of a 'local area union' or 'territorial union' within the national rugby union organization, USA Rugby, such that Harvard no longer was required to be part of New England Rugby Union except for the use of referees certified by a group related to the New England Rugby Union.[9]

On May 14, 1874, Harvard University hosted Montreal’s McGill University at Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the first recorded game using rugby union code rules on American soil, which Harvard won.[10]

The Harvard Men's Team, along with the Princeton and Yale Rugby teams, began the tradition of U.S. college students going on Spring Break to the Caribbean.[11][12]

Recently, the Harvard Rugby Football Club released a film, "Just a Club".[13]

Radcliffe

Radcliffe, the women's team of Harvard, was founded in 1982. The Harvard women’s rugby team, which in 2013 became part of NCAA Emerging Sports for Women and Harvard University's 42nd varsity sport, plays other rugby union NCAA teams from Brown University and Dartmouth College while all other Ivy teams it may play do not yet have NCAA varsity status.[14] Radcliffe were national champions in 1998.
