Long Beach State has had over four decades of winning Rugby tradition. For Long Beach State Rugby to be so consistently successful, there were exceptional athletes that made it possible. Coaches and players have performed at the highest levels of collegiate rugby in the U.S.  We have had players selected to represent the United States as Eagles, coaches and players have preformed at the All American level, and countless players have been and are still being selected for the Pacific Coast and Southern California representative sides. Started in 2016, to recognize the players that have made Long Beach State Rugby the great club it is, we will be inducting former greats into the 49er Rugby Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame selections will be made every other year. Players are eligible for selection 10yrs after their graduation from the club. Congratulations to those that have been selected to receive Long Beach State Rugby's highest honor.
