Therefore whether you are looking to play competitively or play more social rugby we have you covered from all angles. In addition we have a strong link with Chichester RFC, who play in the London 1 League, they have 4 teams and are located right next door. Consequently the club have all the facilities, links, coaching and game-time any rugby player could want or have at whatever level one wishes to play. The Men’s Rugby club welcomes all players of any ability to train and play in a handsome, friendly and dedicated environment.
We claim to host the most inclusive and fun socials on campus run by our specialist social team who ensure you spend all week looking forward to Wednesday's (the biggest night out of the week). Social events play a fundamental role in team cohesion from the very beginning of the year. Even though there are a wide variety of activities to be involved in other than these they all help the club upholding its reputation as the bestest club who’s fun and outgoing atmosphere is more than any other on campus.
Here are a few short quotes from current students:
“If mens rugby was a meal deal, it would come from Waitrose.”(Green, 2020)
“Not joining rugby in my first year is possibly my biggest regret at uni, the boys all made me feel welcome and a part of this great club.”(Ward, 2020)
