Christian Brothers University is a small private college, with great academic pathways and with connections at Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits and startups throughout the great city of Memphis, a stellar record for graduate employment. At CBU we reward all rugby players with an annual $4k scholarship and up to $18k merit based scholarship, we are also thought of very highly by the school administration and athletic department and have all fees, match travel and accommodation paid for.


I have been involved in rugby for around 30 years, starting off playing at junior levels and then coaching/playing in the UK, New Zealand and here in the US since relocating 4 years ago. I am also a high school teacher of 10 years, so I am very much invested in you as a whole student, not just an athlete. I am a big believer in creating an environment which places value on hard work and character as well as skill. You can view former player testimonials here if you would like.


Please fill out this quick form below if you’d like to register your interest in joining us so that our admissions department can follow up with you  



I have also copied our assistant coach in on this email so please reply all if you have any questions about the school or the program itself.


Many thanks for your time and we are excited at the prospect of you becoming a Buccaneer.
