About the Club

We are one of the proudest and most passionate clubs in the University of Manchester. Our hard work and togetherness saw us enjoy an excellent season last term. Highlights included winning varsity at the Etihad Stadium complex and going one further than the preceding year to win the cup. The club’s success has led us to introduce a new development team this year, which will serve as a stepping stone to the 1st Team. We hope the development side will mature into a fully-fledged 2nd Team in coming seasons. The club utilises its strong links to the Manchester Rangers RLFC to further our standard. We often arrange friendlies with the Rangers, while learning from their top class coaches at training sessions. Experienced players and Rugby League amateurs alike are welcome at our club.

Club Philosophy

Our club couples our on-field prowess to a vibrant and inclusive social life. You won’t find a more close-knit club in Manchester. Many of the boys go on to make their best mates at Rugby League and move in together in later years. Our Social Secretary organises regular socials and events and we have a dedicated Tour Secretary to ensure we get the off-season we deserve. The club also knows when to work hard and our fully qualified coaching team run two training sessions a week. Additional gym and fitness sessions are organised between the lads.
