What We Do

UBRFC is one of the largest sports clubs at the University, accommodating five BUCS teams of varying ability, with both a Men's and Women's Rugby Squad. Our RUSH-D programme is set up for freshers and non-BUCS players, who still want to play in a competitive league and acts as a development pathway into our BUCS teams. The RUSH-D Freshers play in a fresher league with other universities, as well as an internal fantasy-league with the rest of RUSH-D, making it both entertaining and competitive. 

With top class coaches, facilities and rugby educational programmes, UBRFC caters for all players, both male and female, from the serious international-level players 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.
