BEVERLY, Mass. — For the third consecutive week, the Endicott club men's rugby team has been ranked first overall on the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) Top-25 Coaches Poll.

Endicott remained the top team in the country by winning last week's NSCRO Northeast Regional Championship with victories over Monroe College (74-10) and then No. 3 Salve Regina (64-15).


Since 2007, the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) has been at the forefront of fostering and developing small college rugby programs in the United States. NSCRO is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services to small college programs that raise the profile, image, and benefits of collegiate rugby in the eyes of school administrators. 

Comprised of nearly 400 men's and women's college rugby clubs who participate in more than 30 leagues, NSCRO provides an opportunity for these programs to showcase their abilities to a broader audience with a chance at a national title and ranking. Along with recognizing club and player success on and off the field, the increased visibility NSCRO creates has led to improved school support, greater on-campus interest in rugby, and growth in financial support and alumni involvement.
