Welcome to UQ

Welcome to UQ Rugby Club,  

The MRP has welcomed UQ Rugby into its Tribe in 2019.

UQ Rugby will be on debut to host the MRP Colts this season, so we will be kicking off our first season together.

The MRP Colts division has been specifically designed to encourage young men and women 14 – 22 years of age with learning and perceptual disabilities (MRP Players) and their families to become active members of their local rugby club community.

As part of the MRP Colts at UQ Rugby, each MRP Players will be matched with university-aged (18-25) PlayerMentors, to help them experience the thrill of playing rugby often for the very first time.

It’s all about creating a place where these young people feel safe, are understood, experience success and belong.
