Tonight's Rugby showdown to decide Varsity winners

Following a tremendous victory for both women’s and men’s teams in Thursday night’s Fencing fixture, UCLU now lead the series 6-5 heading into the last day. This evening the women’s and men’s teams will meet in the rugby finale from 5pm, and UCLU need to win just one match to take us to 7 points and win the series. 

Meeting in Allianz Park, the women’s match kicks off at 5pm, and the men’s at 7.30pm. Steeped in competitive history and with all still to play for, this is not an event to be missed.

Engaging the community through Rugby

On 26th February and 5th March UCL Men’s rugby visited Chislehurst Sixth form and Chislehurst School for girls to inform and inspire their year 12 and year 7 students.

They first spoke to 70 Year 12 students; sharing their experiences on preparing for university, choosing the right university and how to navigate the first year as a university student. The sixth form students then broke out into smaller groups for a Q&A with the UCLRFC members.
