The Flint Rogues Rugby Football Club is a rugby union team from Flint, Michiganmarker and member of USA Rugby, Division III Midwest Rugby Eastern Conference, Northern Leagueand Division III of the Michigan Rugby Football Union.

History

In March 1972, Larry Marfechuk and Jim Keener became the founding members of the Flint Rogues Rugby Football Club when they gathered a group of male athletes and taught them the game of rugby football. Back in 1972, the game was not as widespread in the State of Michiganmarker as it is now and the Rogues were one of the first senior mens rugby teams in the state. The original uniform was red/white/blue in color but was replaced with the current colors of red/white/black.

In 1976, the Flint Rogues were a top contender in the State of Michigan. The club traveled to many tournaments out of state as far as Missourimarker and Louisianamarker. In 1980, the club brought home the B Division Championship for the Michigan Rugby Union in 1980 and also a Consolation Trophy for the B Division at the Great Lakes Rugby Tournament in Detroitmarker. In 1984, the Flint Rogues won the Michigan Cup, First Division state title. In 1990, the Rogues won the Division II Michigan Cup, winning it again in 1992. In 1993, the Rogues won the Battle Creek 7's tournament and qualified for the Midwest 7's for the only time in club history.

The club experienced a good run from the late 1990s and into early 2000s, being promoted to Division II of the Michigan Rugby Union. The club won the Division II Michigan Cup consecutively in 2002 and 2003. After a winless season in 2008, the Rogues rebounded, posting a 5-1 record in the 2009 spring season.
