  • –  RFU National 1

One of the incredible things about Loughborough Students Rugby Football Club is that, not only are we very successful but we offer a vast array of academic opportunities to our players at both Loughborough College and Loughborough University.

Loughborough Students RFC 1st XV compete in RFU National League 1 which is an open competition. We also run 4 sides competing in the British Universities and Colleges Competition (BUCS) as well as having an array of friendly fixtures. Finally we are extremely proud of our strong 7s history and run both a performance and development 7s programme.

Leading the Men’s Rugby Programme is Head Coach Gerard Mullen who is supported by Performance Coach Gareth Harris. Both are retired professional players who have since gained extensive experience coaching both at Loughborough and in the National Leagues. The club’s partnership with Leicester Tigers includes further coaching support in the form of Richard Blaze and Boris Stankovic, Premiership winning players/coaches.
