There are opportunities for both men and women's rugby at Caius.

Gonville & Caius Rugby Club is one of the College's major sports clubs, with more than 30 members playing and training regularly in the men's squad. We accommodate all ranges of abilities and have a mix of all years including several graduate students. The college regularly has players representing University teams.

The team has improved considerably over the past few seasons, gaining successive promotions to the top division of college rugby. We also organise a very well attended old boys' game and are hoping to run a tour.

Our women's team warmly welcomes beginners to the sport - we team up with Queens' College as women's rugby is still developing in Cambridge and by getting together we can build strong squads. However, there is now an inter-college league and the sport is developing fast for women. We are also one of Caius’ most successful sporting clubs. Last year, our team won the college league, and the joint Queens-Caius team had strong representation at University rugby level, with three varsity players, two for blues and one for seconds.

University rugby at Cambridge is played at a very high standard, with the Varsity match for men and women played at Twickenham every December.
