Welcome to the University of Gloucestershire Rugby League Page

Welcome!! Please take a quick read of this page and come back later for some photo and event updates!!
The club currently competes with 2 teams in the British Universities & Colleges Sport leagues (BUCS)
The first team play in the Premier South League and are currently looking to win the league  and Nationals again this year. We came second last season losing only 2 games against Loughborough & Leeds Met and the previous year we won both BUCS and the National Cup.
The second team compete in the Western 1A league which is just below the premier south and made it into the league by being promoted last year.
Both teams have very professional standards and are looked up to at the university as being one of the highest acheiving teams as a whole.
We are fortunate enough to have the honour of being the only club who is able to represent The University of Gloucestershire in the highest level of a BUCS League as well as being the only university in the world to own a professional team (All Golds)
With performances only getting better, and squad morale matching it; this next season is going to be a huge one!
As well as priding ourselves with the work we do on the field, we never forget that with every club a good social is very important! After all matches on each Wednesday the entire squad gets together, and enjoys a themed fancy dress social before an awesome night out.
We welcome all levels of ability to the club whether complete novices to the game or keen enthusiasts of either code of rugby. If you have never played League before, do not worry, the coaching you receive is excellent and will teach you all you need to know. Rugby league can develop your entire rugby game, with the quick pace and physicality improving both your attack and defence.

Feel free to get in touch and also feel free to email our Club Captain, George Giles, on or add us on Facebook. Just search “University of Gloucestershire Rugby League” and we will answer any questions you might have.

We look forward to hearing from you and playing with you next season!

Go Hard or Go home – on and off the pitch!
