WHY PLAY BULLS RUGBY?
Have you ever wanted to play on a division I sports team, compete against large schools, and travel? Than this may very well be just for you! The Truman State Bulls rugby squad is one of the only Division I sporting opportunities at the University. Additionally, if you like to watch NCAA football or basketball, there is a good chance that we play some of these universities! Some of the teams in our division include Mizzou, Kansas, Kansas State, and Iowa State. As a team, we also travel several times a semester. For instance, last fall we traveled to Lawrence, Kansas and Lincoln, Nebraska. In short, playing rugby with the Bulls will provide you with an opportunity to fulfill your wildest sporting dreams and then some!
WHAT IF I’VE NEVER PLAYED RUGBY BEFORE?
NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL. Most of our players HADN’T played before stepping on Campus. In fact, several players had never even played a organized sport before. Just come out and give it a try!
