About the Club

We are looking for keen rugby players, of intermediate or advanced level, that have played a good standard of rugby before coming to The University of Manchester. If you are a fit, tenacious and likeable student athlete then we want you! The BUCS squad trains twice a week and we field 3 teams for BUCS matches on Wednesday afternoons.

We have a Development Squad, who also train and play matches weekly, and this group is monitored regularly to bring players through into the BUCS teams. For any further talent that falls through the net, we have scouts monitoring players in the Campus Leagues. We provide three experienced coaches for our teams and a team physio.

Club Philosophy

We train especially hard to compete with other Universities who also play Rugby at the highest level. UMRFC has a family feel, where many first-years meet their closet friends at Uni, resulting in many rugby houses come second and third year! Whilst we work hard at improving ourselves as teams and as individuals on the field, we also enjoy our time off the field with many social events and team bonding sessions. We also give the opportunity to venture out on rugby tours, usually during the Christmas and Easter breaks (Ski Trip and Saloufest).
