BUCS, in collaboration with home nation unions and Rugby Vertical, launched BUCS Super Rugby for the start of the 2016-17 season.
Now in its second season, BUCS Super Rugby is an all-new men’s Rugby Union league comprising of the nine best men’s Rugby Union university teams across the UK in an exciting new structure, ensuring the highest quality of rugby in each game week.
Before the beginning of the 2017-18 season, representatives from each of the nine teams, BUCS staff and the RFU will meet at the home of rugby, Twickenham Stadium, as an opportunity to discuss the upcoming season.
Keith Fleming, University of Exeter coach said: “The RFU and BUCS working in partnership is definitely helping move the programme forward. The RFU have come in with a raft of support packages for the universities involved which is helpful, and between them we’re going to make steps forward.”
Darren Fearn, Head of Rugby at Northumbria University said: “The BUCS Super League is a great opportunity to play top quality rugby, progressing on the rugby ladder while also getting a strong academic side. All the performance sports really push that at Northumbria, you push both angles and then you can have a degree and the chance to play professional rugby, which a lot of players have done in the past.”
