Rugby League

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.
Our success goes through to our second team who compete in BUCS Western A, 1 league below the 1st team where they finished 2nd in the 2016/17 season. This was a great improvement on last year’s finish where they finished 5th.
We will look to go 1 further this year and win the National cup where we lost out to Hull Univeristy, where they scored a try to win the game in the last play.
Both teams have very professional standards and are looked up to at the university as being one of the highest acheiving teams as a whole.
We are fortunate enough to have the honour of being the only club who is able to represent The University of Gloucestershire in the highest level of a BUCS League as well as being the only university in the world to own a professional team (All Golds)
With performances only getting better, and squad morale matching it; this next season is going to be a huge one! 
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 UTP (Under The Prom) a nightclub in cheltenham. All our member get 20% discount to use at their venue as well as free que jump all year.
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 also feel free to email our Club Captain, Errol Carter, on or add us on Facebook. Just search "University of Gloucestershire Rugby League" 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!
