N.S.R.F.C. Hall of Fame

NSRFC is proud to announce Bobby Moran as a member of the N.S.R.F.C. Hall of Fame. Bobby Moran is a great example of what rugby means and embodies the spirit of NSRFC. A quiet, fierce competitor on the field, Bobby is one of the nicest guys off it. With his Fred Flintstone feet and ability to juke and jive his way through defenses, Bobby holds the distinction of being perhaps the most capped player in North Shore history. Thats why Bobby Moran is a N.S.R.F.C. Hall of Famer.

NSRFC Hires Coach Morgan Roberts as New Head Coach!

North Shore Rugby is pleased to announce the hiring of Morgan Roberts as new Head Coach

Morgan began playing rugby in 2001 at Boston University and went on to play with several women's clubs (North Shore Women, Portland Women, Boston Women, and Beantown Women) from 2006 through 2019. She also played for and captained the women's side of the Northeast 7's Academy from 2015-2017, and has also played 7's for the prior-mentioned women's clubs, as well as Stars and Tiger Rugby tours. She has served on several rugby executive boards in positions including Vice President, Treasurer, 7's Coordinator, 7's Selector, and Captain.
Morgan spent two years coaching Essex County Youth Rugby's Girls' U19 team, working with girls from a handful of schools and backgrounds to create a positive team culture, accepting environment, and improving the performance record for the new program. Throughout 2018 and 2019, Morgan served as assistant coach for several Elite Women's 7's teams working with highly experienced and world-class coaches and national level women's players. She is also devoting time during the summer of 2019 serving as a volunteer coach for Beantown Rugby's development and NERFU summer 7's sides.
Morgan believes that rugby is an amazing and unique outlet for men and women of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. She believes the sport can build confidence, teach leadership and decision-making, and develop character. Additionally, she is a firm believer in a strong, positive team culture, and the "old school" philosophy that "defense wins games."
"We feel very fortunate to have a coach of the caliber of Coach Roberts. She's a proven winner and comes highly recommended by everyone who has worked with her. We had many applicants for this position and she emerged through the interview process as the best fit to lead our rugby program into the future." - (John Rice, President, NSRFC)
