Both beginners and experienced players are welcome on our teams. The main objective is to play rugby in an international forum of Danish and foreign students and have fun at the same time, hence the level of experience does not matter. We therefore hope to see students who are yet to be acquainted with the game of rugby, and who are willing to take up the challenge and enjoy one of the most played sports in the world.

Socializing is a big part of the rugby team, both through practices, rugby matches, but especially since post (and sometimes pre) match pub crawling is an essential part of the culture.

You can find many videos on YouTube – both of how to play it and matches – and find the entire rules on irb.com, which is the homepage for the International Rugby Board, which governs the sport internationally.

In the UK, an old saying goes “Football is a gentleman’s game played by ruffians (violent individuals) and rugby is a ruffian’s game played by gentlemen“. In most rugby-playing countries, rugby union is widely regarded as an “establishment” sport, played mostly by members of the upper and middle classes.

“If you don’t mind getting dirty, love running and being outside and if you’re looking for good mates that support you not only on the pitch, you will love playing Rugby at CBS!”
