Welcome to RUMS Rugby , the rugby union team of the Royal Free, University College, and Middlesex Medical Students' Society and UCL's highest ranked rugby club. We welcome all students who study at University College London. We are an active club and welcome players of all skills levels.
We currently have three teams that compete in various competitions with two weekly BUCS teams and a pre-clinical team that play exhibition games. Each year, we participate in the BUCS league and cup and the United Hospitals Cup, the oldest club rugby competition in the world. Our First XV compete in BUCS South-Eastern 2A. Our Second XV, The Boars, compete in BUCS South-Eastern 4A. We also attend numerous 7s competitions either end of the 15s season.
For the upcoming season, we have an exciting new setup with training on an RFU artificial grass pitch, a National 2 level coach and plenty of other benefits.
Our preclinical exhibition team plays a yearly fixture against alumni as well as the Bill Smiths memorial cup, attracting crowds of hundreds to watch.
We have had recent success in the UH cup, winning in 2018 and 2015, making the final in 2017 and 2019, as well as being the current champions of UH 7s. Our 2XV are current UH 2s champions.
