Interested in rugby? Each semester the Middlebury Men’s Rugby Club, also known as The MCRC, welcomes dozens of new players to the family and we would love to see you join us. Whether or not you have ever played, seen or heard of rugby all interested Middlebury male students are welcome (female students interested in rugby please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved in their great program).
VERY IMPORTANT: If you have any interest in rugby whatsoever please complete the 2 (TWO) online health forms by 9/21 – https://herc.middlebury.edu/sportsmed/index.php.
