Rugby Union (Men’s)

Welcome to the homepage of Mens Rugby Union at the University of Chester. We a have competitive 1st XV and 2nd XV that compete against other universities in BUCS. We also have a keen development squad that play in friendlies against other universities, to help players with little or no experience in rugby develop their skills, and play social touch matches. Mens Rugby Union is a welcoming sport with a healthy social life.

In 2015/16, our 1st XV play in a very competitive league (Northern 2A), competing against the likes of Manchester, Liverpool Lancaster and Keele university. With back to back promotions over the past two seasons we were pleased with our performance this year placing 3rd in the league, with a view to place in the top 2 in the 2016/2017 season, supported by a strong coaching staff.  Our 2nd XV didn’t favour so well, despite a strong season they were unfortunately demoted in the last game of the season, they have an aim to be promoted next season.

Men’s rugby union is a large society thats very welcoming, we play at a competitive level but also offer alternatives. we have a well disciplined ethos and have an active social life.
