The main aim of Millfield Rugby is to develop individual players in an enjoyable and challenging environment. At least three teams compete in each age group so physically smaller players can develop without being overpowered by those who have had an early growth spurt. Players are monitored carefully, regardless of the team they play in.

Confidence is particularly important, and this is fostered by playing a '15 man game' at levels where everybody can contribute. Enjoyment and development are at the heart of Millfield Rugby. 

We play regular fixtures between September and March. These fixtures include 15-a-side and sevens.

Rugby is offered to girls as a MAP (Millfield Activity Programme) option and as a summer games option.

Millfield’s Director of Rugby is ex-Bath and England player John Mallett. He is supported by a team of 18 coaches.

There are a large number of Old Millfieldians who are playing and have played international rugby. Currently this includes Chris Robshaw, Harlequins and former Captain for England; England prop, Mako Vunipola; Jonathan Joseph, Bath and England; Huw Jones and Adam Hastings, Glasgow and Scotland; and Gareth Edwards of Wales and The British Lions who is an OM and our current Millfield Rugby president.

Millfield Rugby continues to provide an opportunity for elite rugby players to develop and uncover their potential. In close tandem with this pathway it is our desire to encourage and enhance an enjoyment and passion for the game of rugby union.
