Abertay University Rugby Club

Men’s Rugby

The team went on a winning streak last year beating every team in the league and not dropping a single point showing the talent of both the players and coaching team.

To say sport is a game of two half’s can often be seen as a cliché however this is most definitely the story of Abertay Rugby’s season last year. Sitting rock bottom of BUCS 2A at Christmas the team went on a winning streak beating every team in the league and not dropping a single point to ensure their place in 2A for next year showing the talent of both the players and coaching team. The club also went on a cup run getting knocked out at the semi-final stage due to a technicality. With the restructure of BUCS leagues to accommodate College sport for the first time it is hoped the rugby club will be able to field a 2nd 15 again. The club are fortunate to share a community club link with Morgan FP RFC, a SRU BT Caledonia League Division 1 side. This link provides the use of facilities, club participation opportunities and most importantly structured training from a team of qualified coaches on Monday evenings. The club have put in place a structured set up for next year and have high targets to achieve success on the pitch as well as development of the club.

Woman’s rugby is a growing team within Abertay Sport, not a fully competitive club yet but the girls are no less a part of university sport. Enjoying the same benefits as the men that come from a strong community link with Morgan FP RFC and under the guidance of Elite Athlete, International Club Captain and Abertay club Captain Emilia Kristiansson the club continue to grow. With clear goals set for the new term and training already in place for next season we are sure the team will develop through the coming year. Training takes place at Morgan FP RFC Alloway Place on Monday evenings 19:00 – 20:45 and Tuesday evenings in room G11 next to Abertay Gym 19:00 – 20:30.
