About

Late in 1995, several students from Northeastern laid the foundation for a Women’s Rugby Club. After performing all the administrative duties required, practices began in January of 1996. Although the team was still developing its skills, matches were scheduled for the spring. During the first season, the team suffered many losses. Despite this the team worked hard to learn from their mistakes and vowed to enter their first season with the New England Rugby Football Union (NERFU) with pride and strength. The fall of 1996 proved to be successful for the club when, in 1997 they won the Beast of the East Division III. Since then the Northeastern Women's Rugby team in 2005 won the Beast of the East Division II title and went on to take place third in the nation in Division II. In 2006 the team moved to the Division I conference, and had been playing there ever since. Since then, we have won numerous tournaments and were most recently crowned as 2012's Division 1 Beast of the East Champion.
