Loughborough Students RFC offers a unique rugby playing opportunity with a complete rugby pathway from participation through to the professional game. Loughborough Students RFC is a student-based rugby club made up of around 150 players that compete over 5 competitions:
- – RFU National 1
- – BUCS Super Rugby
- – BUCS Premier North A
- – BUCS Premier North B
- – BUCS Midlands 3B
We provide a fully competitive and varied fixture list in order to maximise the development of our players along with a support team of top class coaches, sport scientists and medics. We have an empowering culture that means players have to develop their ability to take responsibility for their own performance whilst being encouraged to develop their leadership skills as far as they can take them.
On top of this we sit in the middle of a genuinely world class athletic environment. To quote Lord Coe:
“Loughborough now has the best integrated sports training environment in the world.”
We believe that the fixture list is the strongest competitive fixture list of any university in the country. All three of out BUCS teams are playing against other institutions’ first XV’s giving challenging fixtures all the way through the club. The depth of talent that we attract ensures that we compete strongly across all these levels.
