What We Do

UBRFC is one of the largest sports clubs at the University, accommodating six BUCS teams of varying ability, including a Women’s Union team, a Rugby League team and a Mixed Touch team. The newly established RUSH-D intramural set up provides three extra men’s teams to act as a development squad for our BUCS teams while providing even more students with the opportunity to represent the University.

With top class coaches, facilities and coach and refereeing educational programmes, UBRFC caters for all players, both male and female, from the serious international to those that have never picked up a rugby ball before. We offer opportunities to become involved in all aspects of the game whether as a player, a coach, referee or even just as a social member.
