SMU Rugby Alumni Group

 

 

The Singapore Management University Rugby Team – more affectionately known as The City Boys started in 2005 as a social touch rugby team. SMU Rugby eventually grew to become a power house in the local contact rugby scene winning countless medals in the tertiary rugby leagues and local tournaments since its induction. The City Boys has also been a breeding ground for talent and has seen many don National Colors across all age groups, Men’s 7s
and Men’s 15s teams. There are close to 150 connected alumni as of 2017 and many voluntarily give back and have been involved in various training camps, tournaments and campaigns over the years – either as mentors, coaches or the 16th man.

I would love to eventually see a greater team spirit that goes beyond the four years spent as a student and for the boys of each and every batch to get to know one another better! This would definitely ripple down to the current team and keep them inspired.
