Shrewsbury is unusual in playing Rugby in the Lent term only, but this does not prevent a large number of boys from playing at a high level; indeed, almost every fixture is against schools who have been playing since September, so the learning curve in January can be steep. There are now opportunities for squads to get together towards the end of the Michaelmas term to start their preparations.  Keen players are also able to play club rugby before Christmas.  Fixtures are arranged against a number of top rugby playing schools, including King Edward's Birmingham, Old Swinford Hospital and Warwick.  The U16s and U18s now both enter at the Rosslyn Park Sevens in March.  The senior squad has an annual tour.


Any forthcoming Rugby fixtures for the current term will be displayed below.

More detailed information about each of the fixtures can be found on our Sports Calendar. (Note: Viewing the Calendar either by Week or by Day gives you more information at a glance than the default monthly view.)

If you are following a particular team or teams, you can also select their fixture list from the Rugby Fixtures and Results page, which includes team selections (where you see this blue image ) and location maps for away matches. It is possible to download a team's fixture list onto your personal calendar on your PC or mobile device, which will then be synchronised with the master fixture list whenever your device is connected to the internet.
