Men's Rugby
At JBU, our Rugby Club pursues the head-heart-hand philosophy of John Brown University. We seek to combine the hard-hitting game of rugby with Christ-like attitudes and actions. Our team desires not only to improve our skills in the sport of rugby, but also to be a positive Christian witness on and off the field. Our team finishes each practice and each match with prayer and a united singing of the "Doxology." This serves to remind all who look on the true reason for the club and to whom we give all glory and honor for the team, Jesus Christ.
