Mark your 📆!

Mark your 📆! Saturday, September 24th We are very excited to host FOUR women’s teams at Westwick in our first annual event celebrating women in rugby! This epic day will feature the KU women’s team facing off against Missouri, as well as Arkansas going up against Wayne State. Additionally, our guys will have a league match against Missouri with a Club Side game against Wayne State to follow. Whether you’re a player, wife, girlfriend, daughter or friend, we can’t wait to celebrate YOU! One of our goals set this year is to get more women involved in the organization. With the Women’s Rugby World Cup coming up in a few months, a big part of that effort will be promoting the game and bringing awareness to women of all ages that they not only belong in this sport, they thrive. If you are interested in hearing more about getting involved with women’s rugby, contact us or @kuwomensrfc #ROCKCHALK #FAMILY

🚨New Recruit🚨

🚨New Recruit🚨
Jayhawk fans, help us welcome incoming freshman @jonah.dolphino ! Jonah joins us from Shawnee Mission West where he played Outside Linebacker and Wide Receiver on the football team and ran track. Before he made the switch to football, he played rugby and soccer in middle school. He is named after the late great New Zealand All Black Jonah Lomu. We had the privilege of meeting Jonah at our high school recruiting event last week where he told us how excited he is to be playing rugby again after time away from the game. He joins a long list of Jayhawk Ruggers that played football or another sport in high school. We look forward to having him in Lawrence where his athletic background will help him tremendously in picking up right where he left off with rugby. Welcome to the family, Jonah! #ROCKCHALK #FAMILY

We’d like to introduce this year’s Captain, Trevor Lister.

We’d like to introduce this year’s Captain, Trevor Lister. Trev is a Sports Management Major and has been playing rugby since his sophomore year at Blue Valley High School. If you’ve been around the club at all the last year, you undoubtedly know him from his dominant performances on the pitch as a sophomore, as he led the team in try’s with 9. But something that sticks out even more than his play is his leadership and unmatched level of respect for the game and everyone around. Opposing teams included. In our conference semifinal game against Iowa State last fall, after he scored the game-winning try on the last play, Trev had every right to get off the grass and celebrate with his teammates. Instead, he could be seen lending a hand to an Iowa State player to help him up off the ground first. After a tough 5 point loss in the National Championship this past spring, Trev led his teammates over to the Fresno State players to exchange handshakes, hugs and words in a true showing of what the game is all about. Between his play and his ability to instill the core values of the game along the way, we have the utmost confidence that he will adequately lead our guys into battle every week, as well as our preparations leading up to those battles. When this position was voted upon by his teammates in the spring, there was no hesitation in bringing his name up, which speaks volumes on how the team feels about him and we are very excited to see what Trevor can do in this position! #ROCKCHALK #FAMILY

Michael Hooper’s situation gives us an opportunity to speak up and share some words about an ongoing issue in this world;

Michael Hooper’s situation gives us an opportunity to speak up and share some words about an ongoing issue in this world; mental health. For those who do not know, Hooper is the captain for the Australian National Team. He is a phenomenal player, and has given his all throughout the 121 tests representing his country. But on the eve of his 122nd test, he showed what it truly means to have strength. As the team was set to take on Argentina today, Hooper withdrew his name from contention to return back home for what was reported as “personal reasons”. As some time went on, we heard from him that it was due to not being in the correct mindset to fulfill his duties as captain. He didn’t owe anyone a reason behind his decision, but again showed strength in disclosing why he made it as the whole world was looking at him and wondering. What happened next is a true testament of what this sport is all about; rallying behind your mates. There has been an outpouring of support for his decision, which shows us all why it is important to speak up if you’re struggling. Whether it’s a random Wednesday morning, or on the eve of a major test match, your mental health should always come first, and you will never let anyone down or disappoint by prioritizing it. A lot of men think it shows strength to fight your demons alone or push through the struggle, but the real strength is having the courage to speak up, address it, and utilize help to get better. The KJRFC very strongly feels for these issues, and we try to hammer this into our own guys. You are not alone, and you owe it to yourself to not fight alone. It may be hard, but so is prolonging your struggle. Your mates will always have your back, and rugby will always be here for you whenever you have the strength again to return. Your mates are here to help pick you up off the rugby field, but more importantly, in life as well. Speak up. Together, we can help get you through your darkest days. Thank you, Hooper.
