Lincoln University Rugby, undoubtedly the strongest university rugby club in NZ. Currently Christchurch's Senior Division 1 and Premier Colt’s champions. The club caters for men and women's players of all abilities. The rugby season runs from semester I (February) with trials and pre-season match’s and competition commencing in April; and runs through until August with sevens rugby occurring through October.
The Club is proud of the performance of our recent All Blacks including Sam Whitelock, Scott and Jordie Barrett and Dominic Bird whilst there are numerous players currently turning out for the Crusaders (the most successful super rugby team) and Canterbury ITM Cup sides. In recent years the Club has also provided personnel for the NZ under 20’s team and the New Zealand Universities side.
A season playing rugby can be combined with a semester of academic study at Lincoln University (Feb- July).
