Welcome to the University of Gloucestershire Rugby League Page
Our 1st team competes in British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Premier South - we have great pride in being the only team within the University to compete at the highest level within student sport. We compete with teams such as Loughborough & Exeter’s 1st team. In the 2016/17 season we won the league only losing 1 game.
In the 2018/19 season, we had a massive fresher intake into our squad and still finished comfortably mid table in the premier division. With everyone learning from each other last year, this year we are confident of a very successful season for the club.
Last year was a massive rebuild for rugby league, in terms of our squad, and it was extremely successful. So much so, that this year we will be entering two competitive teams into the BUCS league. Both of our teams have very professional standards and are looked up to at the university as being one of the highest acheiving teams as a whole.
With performances only getting better, and squad morale matching it; this next season is going to be a huge one and we are so excited to reach our full potential this year!
As well as priding ourselves with the work we do on the field, we never forget that with every club a good social is very important! After all matches on each Wednesday the entire squad gets together, and enjoys a themed fancy dress social before an awesome night out. Our socials are held at Revolution, a bar in Cheltenham. All our members receive a ‘Revs Card’ alongside their membership which gives a great discount on food and drink all year round!
We welcome all levels of ability to the club whether complete novices to the game or keen enthusiasts of either code of rugby. If you have never played League before, do not worry, the coaching you receive is excellent and will teach you all you need to know. Rugby league can develop your entire rugby game, with the quick pace and physicality improving both your attack and defence.
Feel free to get in touch and email our Club Captain, Brett Davies on firstname.lastname@example.org or add us on Facebook. Just search "University of Gloucestershire Rugby League" or click the link on the left to any of our social media channels and we will answer any questions you may have.
We look forward to hearing from you and playing with you next season!
Go Hard or Go home - on and off the pitch!
