Unity and discipline are above everything.
That is the code NSBM Rugby club follows and it has earned many achievements because of that. Thus, the rugby club is one of the most highlighted clubs in the university since its non-stop victories under the NSBM name.
The club emerged as winners in many platforms in the tournaments held last year including Mora 7s, ICBT 7s, KDU 10s, and one international tournament, the UiTM international sports tournament organized by the University of Technology MARA, Shah Alam, Malaysia. Under the captaincy of Kasun Wimalasuriya and his deputy Selaka Molligoda. This year the club won its first championship at the Mora 7s which was held on the 19th of February at Havelock park.
The second win this year was a huge one, the last year’s bowl champions at UiTM international sports tournament have bounced back to become the runners-up at the cup stage defeating many offshore universities in Asia. “Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come” as a wise man once said, players, work hard for these achievements. It’s not just a game, it’s a way of life. Rugby is a 100% physical game, so you must have both mental and physical endurance.
If you’re tough and you want it to be contested, this is the place for you because only the toughest will make it to the end. Practice dates are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3pm – 5pm. Once you step onto the field you may not back down because everyone has their role to play in the team. It requires a lot of determination and passion and luckily the mighty Greens of NSBM have what it takes to shine bright at the end of the day.
