Rugby 7s

The Rugby 7s program at Melbourne University Rugby Football Club comprises of 

* University of Melbourne 7s

* Melbourne University Rugby 7s

The University of Melbourne 7s program is for current university students, while the Melb Uni 7s program is for all players.

The AON 7s Program was designed to create a women's 7s team to represent Victoria on the national stage.

Many players went on to play at state and international level, in both 7s and 15s rugby.

It created a pathway for players from different sporting backgrounds to develop Rugby 7s skills, with most players staying in the game.

The University Nationals provide another opportunity for female and male players to compete nationally, against other university teams.

The University of Melbourne Mens 7s team achieved First Place in 2023, in Gold Coast. This improved from 3rd place in Perth in 2022.

Six players from the 2023 team were selected to attend World University Games in Marseilles, France in 2024.
