Men’s Rugby

 image
Lewis & Clark Men’s Rugby, also known as the ‘Rockjaws’ is a student run and student funded rugby sports club that has been a part of the LC community for a long time. Last year was the first time the club became official and received funding from the school.
Our club is still in its beginning stages but it has certainly gained much ground in terms of its increasing membership, popularity with the LC student body and expanded rugby network within the Oregon area.
We have recently joined the National Small Colleges Rugby Organization (NSCRO) and will be playing most of our official matches in the Spring. 

Our practice times run Mondays 6-8pm, Wednesdays 8-10pm at Griswold and 3.30-5pm by the Reflecting pool.
Rugby is not only a fun and physically challenging sport, it is also an opportunity for people to meet other new people and develop a sense of camaraderie uncommon in other sports.

Invite your family and friends and become a part of the growing Rugby program here at LC.

A 'scrum' is an important play in Rugby in which the two sets of forwards mass together around the ball and, with their heads down, struggle to gain possession of the ball.A 'scrum' is an important play in Rugby in which the two sets of forwards mass together around the ball and, with their heads down, struggle to gain possession of the ball.

A line-out is an important play used to restart play in Rugby after the ball has gone over the sideline, in which forwards of both teams line up in two lines parallel to the goal line and at least one meter apart, and a player on the team not responsible for putting the ball out of bounds flings the ball between the lines.A line-out is an important play used to restart play in Rugby after the ball has gone over the sideline, in which forwards of both teams line up in two lines parallel to the goal line and at least one meter apart, and a player on the team not responsible for putting the ball out of bounds flings the ball between the lines.
