About Rugby (Mens)

With over 100 years since our formation we are one of the oldest sports clubs at the university and a club steeped in tradition. We currently have three teams, with our 1st XV playing in BUCS Western 1A, our 2nd XV playing in BUCS Western 4A and our 3rd team playing in regular competitive fixtures against local merit league sides. We can cater for all abilities whether wanting the competitiveness of BUCS Rugby or the more social merit rugby, with the aim to improve the rugby of each player no matter the level. The club is proud of its 'one club' ethos, with all the boys going to training and socials together, irrespective of the team they play for. In addition to this we value the playing experience of every player and want all players to enjoy and get the most out of their university rugby experience and have an ever growing relationship with Solent Mind mental health charity.
