Get Ready for Fall ’16 Rugby!

Join Boston Women’s Rugby Club:  


We’re kicking off a new fall season with Boston Women’s Rugby Club! We’ve had an exceptional 2016 so far and you can be a part of our 2016-2017 competitive season! Interested players can email us directly at or check out more information for new players in our New Players Page. Whether you played rugby before or not – all athletes are welcome to come out and give rugby a try! You won’t regret it, rugby is like nothing else! 


Congratulations to BWRFC 7s Nationals Players! 


Boston Women’s Rugby Club competed at the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championships on August 11 and 12 and the 12 players that represented the team made us so proud! After a tough summer of competition – Boston Women’s earned the 2nd Northeast Seed into the Championship, just behind NY’s Old Blue Women’s Team, and returned to the championship for the 2nd year in a row. Tight play in the pool round including a 17-15 victory over Chicago and a 14-12 loss to NOVA led Boston into the playoff rounds playing some of the best 7s ever. Boston advanced to the Shield final and lost in a redemption match to Chicago – but the team grew exponentially and competed well at the highest levels of competition.

In another victory – we had an tremendous summer with all our 7s players. With collegiate players from BU, BC, UCONN and other area teams, as well as an overwelming increase in numbers, we consistently fielded 2-3 sides at summer tournaments and succeeded in building some of the best 7s rugby for the most players out there. We’re so proud of our Summer 2016 7s accomplishments and can’t wait for next summer to play again! 


Fall Schedule is up! 


We can’t wait to see so many Boston Fans coming out to catch our matches this fall! For more information please check out the SCHEDULE PAGE for the most up to date information! Home games are scheduled at Joe Moakley Field in South Boston, and directions can be found on this page. 

Gold Cup Competition: 

 You may notice our scheduling has changed a little – Boston Women’s is taking part in an inaugural competition between Competitive Regions in the Division 1 Women’s Bracket. So in addition to playing the tough competition in the Northeast – we’ll be competing against top teams from other competitive regions in the country. This means in October we’ll face Raleigh Women’s Rugby Club at home and in November we’ll travel face Midwest teams Chicago North Shore and Minnesota Valkyries. This new opportunity is a great way to connect with some amazing teams across the country during our competitive season! Stay Tuned for results and read a great summary of the endeavor at The Rugby Breakdown!

BWRFC Heads to Club 7s National Championship

Boston Qualifies for 2016 Club 7s Nationals


Northeast Summer 7s heated up in 2016 with tremendous competition at summer tournaments! Boston Women’s competed at last year’s 2015 7s National Championship – and worked hard for a return berth to the prestigious competition. An influx of talented collegiate players and the continued dedication of our 15s leaders allowed Boston to push hard throughout the summer season and push hard during the NERFU Summer Sevens Series.

With a NERFU second seed going into the Northeast Regional 7s Playoffs at Saratoga 7s Competition in NY – Boston put all the pieces together on the pitch! With one loss to Old Blue in pool play, Boston stepped into a semi-final match up against Beantown, a team Boston had traded wins and losses with throughout the summer series. Always a tough match, Boston emerged victorious and headed to the finals against Old Blue. The rematch was amazing, with Boston playing some of the best defense of the day and Old Blue constantly pushing for possession. Old Blue was able to slip in one more try than Boston, with a nailbiting final result of 10-5 for Old Blue. Despite the loss in the finals, both teams qualified for the Northeast seeds into the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championship taking place August 13-14 out of Denver, CO.

Boston 7s Tournament Brings the Cape to Boston! 


Boston Women’s brought it’s tremendously successful summer Cape Cod 7s tournament back to Boston this year (fun fact – did you know that before there was Cape Cod 7s – the earliest years the tournament was held in the Boston Metro area 31 years ago!) Our FUN summer tournament that embraces the competitive game and mixes in a theme and costumed play took place on July 23rd in Acton MA – bringing the whimsy of the Cape to Boston! Undeterred by drought- dried fields, over 25 Men’s and Women’s teams took to the pitch and kicked off a new tradition with us churning out Boston 7s first Tournament winners, its first tournament costumes, and our first ever U19 bracket. Check out the event page for even more breakdown, including the victors and some fun photos, but many thanks to all the sponsors that helped us make our return to Boston so successful. We can’t wait to do it again next year!

BWRFC Finishes 3rd in East at D1 National Playoffs 


We wanted to extend our thanks to the MANY people that cheered, supported and donated to our club as we finished our our competitive season this spring. Your support meant the most to us as we claimed the #1 Seed in the Northeast and a spot in the Elite 8s Division 1 Playoffs in Pittsburgh in May, 2016. It was a rainy weekend – that resulted in a tight game and a 12-5 loss on the first day to the Raleigh Venom Women’s Club. But BWRFC came back on Sunday with a rematch against the crosstown rivals that ended in our favor with a 27-8 victory over Beantown. Playoffs weekend culminated in 3rd Place in the East and we’re so proud of our team that never stopped working towards our goals. While we’re excited about our Summer 7s endeavors, we can’t wait for another chance to earn our way to Club 15s Nationals starting in the fall. And we know we’ll have your support as we go. Thank you all – with love and BootKisses. To check out some AMAZING photographs, courtesy of Colleen McCloskey, from our Saturday match against the Raleigh Venom: Click Here
