The University of Toronto Varsity Blues Men's Rugby team competes in OUA men's rugby, and is one of the oldest rugby teams within the league.


The team has a storied history, having won the 1st Grey Cup in 1909, before the split between Rugby Football and Canadian Football. They have been a historical powerhouse, and competed in a rivalry with McGill University's men's rugby team

Present Day[edit]

Because of the university's international recognition, the team is diverse. In addition, men's rugby is a varsity sport, which is not the case in most colleges in the United States. Under the coaching of Brandon Kirkwood-Sadler, the team has shown exponential growth, performance and a positive team culture emerge.

The programme has produced two OUA all-stars, two current professional rugby players and continues to strive for excellence.

The team has access to the state-of-the-art Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport.

The Toronto Arrows train in the same facilities with the Men's rugby team.
