The Rugby Football Club is a proud
Albany Law School tradition dating back more than 36 years. Open to all
students, the teams are student-run organizations that regularly
compete against other colleges and universities. Whether one is an
experienced player or has never set foot on the rugby pitch, all are
welcome to learn and enjoy the game.
The teams play both a fall and
spring season and host two annual tournaments: the Alumni Weekend in
the fall and the William M. Watkins Memorial Tournament in the spring.
The Watkins tournament in the spring is the premier annual event for the
teams, and is held in memory of the late Prof. Watkins who established the rugby tradition at Albany Law School. The
teams are also active in community service and work with the American Red
Cross, the Ronald McDonald House, and other charities.
