RUM is an Association, in operation since 2000, with its main objective being the promotion and the development of rugby in Mauritius.

Our philosophy is represented by the essence of the spirit of rugby which brings together the best qualities of men and women by sharing both the physical and moral strength that we all need in today‟s world. Rugby embraces a number of social and emotional concepts such as courage, loyalty, sportsmanship, discipline and team work. Our sport is built upon the principles of camaraderie, fair play, respect and teamwork. Every player knows these principles are more important than winning or losing.

From the earliest steps in our sport, players are taught the basics of playing fair, enjoying the game and respecting the officials and opponents alike.
