Club Colours & Jersey

Club Colours

Our club's colours are Black & Blue. This was originally selected by the University of Melbourne Sports Union in 1904, as the university's official sporting colours.

It hails from the Oxford University Boat Club with "Oxford Blue and Black" being visible across most University of Melbourne sports clubs and associative sporting clubs.

In recent years, white has been included in the uniforms, resulting in the blue and white hoop jersey.

MURFC has a Pride jersey, incorporating the rainbow colours of inclusion.

And a First Nations jersey, designed using our club colours.

First Nations Jersey

This artwork is a contemporary design inspired by the Melbourne University Rugby's values and sense of community.

This design is a collaboration between two sisters, Melbourne University and Melbourne Rebels indigenous player, Hayley Glass, and her sister, Cortney Glass (the artist).

This symbol (Image A) represents a meeting place or gathering of people.

The four meeting places represent the four teams at Melbourne University Rugby - Men, Women, Colts and Gents/Past Players.

All four gatherings are connected, to repesent the MURFC community, to reinforce that once you join MURFC, you are forever a part of the community and club heritage.

Image B: Leaves & fingerprints

The leaves (Image B) highlight the importance of connection to the land. And to symbolise the fingerprints of the people who have come before us and pave the way for us to play today.

We recognise that our actions leave a fingerprint on the land and each other, with our time at MURFC touching others, and making us a part of the MURFC community forever. 

Acknowledgement of Country

Melbourne University Rugby Football Club proudly acknowledges the the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which our Club sits and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

We recognise the unique place held by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original owners and custodians of the lands and waterways across the Australian continent, with histories of continuous connection dating back more than 60,000 years. We also acknowledge their enduring cultural practices of caring for Country.
