Winner of the ‘150 Years of Rugby in New England Photo Competition’ has been chosen. 

150 years ago the first ever rugby game on American soil was played at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Though the laws were fairly different over a century ago, the spirit of rugby has stayed the same and grown across the nation, forming the beautiful community we cherish today. 

At the beginning of May 2024, The New England Free Jacks called on the Free Jacks’ faithful to help us archive historical photos and documents that tell the story of rugby in the United States.

After many amazing submissions, we have complied the best and chosen a winner!!

Although the competition is over, we would still love to see any pictures that you have of your Rugby playing or watching days.
