Nomads Rugby currently fields three senior men’s teams. The first and seconds compete in the Marshall league, Rugby Ontario’s premier senior men’s competition. The 3rds compete in the Toronto Rugby Union league.

Nomads Rugby provides opportunities for players of all levels of skill and experience to compete at the highest level against Ontario’s best or play less competitive, but no less enjoyable, rugby.

Throughout its 70 + year history rugby players from all over the World and Canada have played together on Nomads teams and today is no different. Nomads Rugby is home to players from Canada and around the Globe – we are a World of Rugby in Toronto.

Off the field we have a proud history and culture and a deserved reputation for a highly enjoyable social scene.
