Milwaukee Barbarians – the very best in Milwaukee Rugby.

In February of 2012, the Milwaukee West Side Harlequins and many of the active players from the Milwaukee Rugby Football Club set out to do something big — to elevate the top-tier rugby played in this state.

Thus began a grand experiment, a great collaboration that hoped to unite the top rugby clubs in the greater Milwaukee region into a super club that could compete at the highest level.

After 18 months, we are happy to report that the experiment has been a success beyond our expectations as the new club, the Milwaukee Barbarians, has been in contention for the National championship 2 seasons running.

In addition, tomorrow we kick off our first match at our new venue — Zablocki Park — in South Milwaukee.
