CLUB HISTORY

After several years of dormancy, Moscow Rugby Football Club started to reestablish itself in the Fall of 2015. Initially, the team played touch rugby on Saturdays to grow renewed interest in the sport. Starting out with only a few players on each side, numbers gradually grew each week. While touch rugby pick-up games are still played during the off season and now include players from WSU and U of I rugby teams, the Mules have turned their attention to 15s and Rugby 7s. With the hopes of eventually transitioning into a full 15s competitive side, our players compete alongside Spokane RFC and plan to continue playing in sevens tournaments over the summer. Check out our Facebook page for the most up to date information.

Rugby in the Moscow-Pullman region of Washington and Idaho has a rich history and bright future. The Blue Mountain Rugby Men’s team was first established in 1976 and competed against some of the best teams in the Inland Northwest. Unfortunately, in 2010 the club disbanded. However, this made way for the first Moscow Rugby Club to be founded in 2012 - The Moscow Magpies. The Magpies competed locally and worked to grow rugby in the community. As well as fielding a competitive men's team, the club founded a very popular rugby youth program for local school kids that still operates today. In 2014 after a few key members relocated from the area, the men's team did not have enough players to continue playing. However, some of the very determined members that were left behind, remained active while working to grow the youth program. It was their drive to carry on the tradition of rugby within the Palouse that led to our first touch rugby pick-up game in the fall of 2015 and eventually the formation of the Moscow Mules.

ABOUT RUGBY

In 2009 the World Rugby Member Unions identified Integrity, Passion, Solidarity, Discipline and Respect as the defining character-building characteristics of Rugby.

Integrity

Integrity is central to the fabric of the Game and is generated through honesty and fair play.

Passion

Rugby people have a passionate enthusiasm for the Game. Rugby generates excitement, emotional attachment and a sense of belonging to the global Rugby Family.

Solidarity

Rugby provides a unifying spirit that leads to life-long friendships, camaraderie, teamwork and loyalty which transcends cultural, geographic, political and religious differences.

Discipline

Discipline is an integral part of the Game both on and off the field and is reflected through adherence to the Laws, the Regulations and Rugby’s core values.

Respect

Respect for team mates, opponents, match officials and those involved in the Game is paramount.

Find out more at worldrugby.org - the official site of the international governing body of rugby union with news, member unions, regional associations, tournaments, results, fixtures, world rankings, laws of the game, regulations, development, training, player welfare, information on playing rugby.

What is admirable in football (rugby), is the perpetual mix of individualism and discipline, the necessity for each man to think, anticipate, take a decision and at the same time subordinate one’s reasoning, thoughts and decisions to those of the captain. And even the referee’s whistle stopping a player for a ‘fault’ one team mate has made and he hasn’t seen, tests his character and patience. For all that, foot-ball is truly the reflection of life, a lesson experimenting in the real world, a first-rate educational tool.
— Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic movement
