Club Profile

In the Spring of 1976, a group University of Montana rugby players/students-for-life finally graduated or gave up aspirations of higher learning.  Faced with the harsh realities of graduation and lack of a rugby team, they formed a new "old boys" side that summer.  The name "UM Old Boys" might have been adopted had it not been for the typically insensitive Canadians who referred to the new team as "that bunch of maggots from Montana."  The name stuck and has always been worn with pride by one of the top rugby teams in the northwestern United States.
