Xavier Men's Rugby continues to celebrate and promote rich tradition, history, and team unity since 1974. The team is excited to represent a club that has had such a successful 42 years on Xavier's campus.

The Xavier Men's Rugby Football Club has successfully established itself in the Men's DII Great Lakes division.  For the 2015 season, the team has shown great effort in preseason games against University of Cincinnati and Ohio Wesleyan and look to capture a Great Lakes division title.  The team will begin league play with 3 straight road games and wrap up the season staying on campus for the final 3 league games.  Come out and support these guys who have put in so much effort to be a force in Division II Rugby and now the NSCRO!!

Running touch under the lights of the soccer field, slashing through defenders and freezing rain, attending Pre-Season Camp, one cannot help but feel the excitement building in this club. As this ecstatic energy grows within our group, at this moment before we plunge into great new challenges, it seems appropriate to pause and acknowledge where we have been and affirm where we are headed. .

  • We are faster, having started conditioning and practicing before any other team 
  • we are stronger, having worked with Xavier Athletics' strength coach, and
  • we are better, all around as we do not work as 15 individuals, but rather as one complete team.

XUFC would like to thank all of its sponsors: FDLIC, Bahl and Gaynor Investment Counsel, Republic Services, and, as always, the continued support of the Old Boys for making our club a continued success.

Coach’s Highlights from the previous game:
"We've been working very hard every week since our fitness and skills camp in mid-August. Even though the competition gets tougher and tougher, This is one of the best teams we've had during my time as coach. We’ve never been to a final four in all the years I’ve been coaching at Xavier. All the hard work has paid off.”- Coach Gaffney
