Student Rugby League
The Student Rugby League organises all aspects of the game within the FE and HE sectors. With over one hundred College and University teams playing across the whole of the UK the Student Rugby League is a vital component of the Rugby Football League.
The Student Rugby League runs the University competition on behalf of BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sports). All the fixtures, results and league tables can be found on the BUCS website www.bucs.org.uk
The BUCS Competition is split into nine playing leagues with the Premier North and the Premier South being supported by seven regional leagues. The fixtures run from October until March leading up to the Championship play off series.
The Carnegie Champion Colleges Competiton is split into three leagues, the North West, Yorkshire and the Premier Division. Again the College leagues play from September until March culminating in a top four play off series.
The Student Rugby League also offers its players fantastic representative opportunities. We have a comprehensive performance pathway with Regional and 4 Nations Championships that take place anually to enable us to select the Great Britain and Ireland Academic Lions squad. This squad takes on the Australian Universities and competes for the ultimate student prize, the Academic Ashes.
