Mudturtle Rugby was founded in the fall of 1974 by Boston College Alumni Jerry Rotella and Hank Hanson.

Mudturtle Rugby Was Born

Together with a contingent of local Union County Novices, Union County Rugby Football Club began its inaugural season. In uniforms of blue and orange, they finished the season a very successful 5-0-1 against Division II and college teams.

The formative years saw some tough and varied seasons building a hard-nosed form of rugby led by the gritty "Rahway Boys". Within those years, a nucleus was built, the club eventually growing to field two teams. Union County RFC Mudturtles have advanced the growth and development of Rugby through education and participation.
