College Spotlight: Rugby at MCM

From U9s up to U18s, rugby is a sport enjoyed by all at Marlborough College Malaysia. Learning the game in a fun, safe and supportive environment is at the heart of everything that we do. 

The MCM rugby programme has the values of ‘Respect’, ‘Discipline’ and ‘Humility’ at its core. We believe that by following these values, our players will not only demonstrate outstanding characteristics on the pitch but that they will also help make them better people off it too. Helping to create good people that enjoy this amazing sport is our fundamental goal.
