Men's Rugby

In This Section

A deeply rooted history behind this club gives Men’s Rugby a competitive edge against their opponents. The success for this national championship team stems from the dedication and hard work that the players, and coaches put in year round. They put on a show every time they step on the pitch.

St. Mary’s players shone bright on the big stage, scoring all of the All-American tries in the game. All four players from St. Mary’s - Payton Telea-ilalio, Tavite Lopeti, Sean Yacoubian and Ronan Murphy - found the try zone.

Five Freshmen Breakouts From 2019 | Flo Rugby | Alex Rees

Joe Marchant, Saint Mary's

Arriving on the Moraga, CA campus of Saint Mary's College in August, Marchant was stepping into a program with a rich legacy of top-notch front rowers. Furthermore, he was joining a team already loaded with talent all across the board, with the front row being no exception. 

However, his hard work earned him a consistent place in the starting pack for the Gaels, and his seven tries in eleven games are a testament to his abilities as not only a great scrummager, but also a valuable asset in open play.
