rugby The Point Loma Rugby Club is designed to provide fellowship for all who enjoy the competitive game of rugby. Rugby is a sport that incorporates a mixture of  football, hockey, and soccer. As a Christian organization, we choose to enjoy rugby and spread the word of God simultaneously. Games are played against  other college club teams in both the fall and spring semesters. Our events off the rugby field range include bonfires, BBQs, and fun on the beach with some  touch rugby. Our recruiting efforts aim not just to recruit players and volunteers, but to give all an opportunity to get connected into the PLNU community. Our  female club branch plays with the team during touch rugby on the beach, and participates in community service events, fundraising, and fellowship.

 Rugby at PLNU: Currently the club is one of the top clubs on the West Coast. As a member of NSCRO (National Small College Rugby Organization) the club  qualified for the 2015 West Coast Challenge Cup in Bend, Oregon. PLNU Rugby competes in the Gold Coast Conference against other Southern California  universities and runs a 7s program that competes in large regional tournaments.  Players represent students from all majors. In addition to being honored as National Scholar Athletes, rugby players have went on to be successful pastors, biologist, business men, and more.  Rugby alumni remain active as part of the Rugby Associates and face the club in an annual 7s tournament that coincides with Homecoming weekend. The friendships you build through Rugby will last a lifetime.

A Short History

In 2000, the Point Loma Rugby Club started as a non-sanctioned team at PLNU. Independently established as the Knights, the club was founded on loyalty, honor, and challenged itself to bring “The Light” to the world of rugby. Through the years, the club gaineduniversity recognition and later received financial support from the ASB as a PLNU club. After 12 years as the Knights, the club decided to realign its mascot with the university logo the Sea Lions. The new motto, established in 2012, brought together the new and the old members under Fidelitas & Contego. Players past and present are called to be loyal (Fidelitas) to each other and to their faith and to protect (Contego) the weak and shield/defend that which is fragile. As a new tradition, senior members of the club graduate and join the Rugby Associates as a Knight.
