Welcome to RUMS Rugby, the rugby union team of the Royal Free, University College, and Middlesex Medical Students' Society and 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 Oktoberfest Sevens in Munich, 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.

For the new season in 2020/21, we have an exciting setup with new facilities, a physio, a gym and are looking forward to welcoming our new forwards coach, former Italian international and captain Francesco Minto. 

Since 2015, we have played an annual game against Paris Sciences et Lettres Research University to celebrate their partnership with UCL. We alternate between Paris and London hosting each year. This is a joint venture with UCL Women's Rugby which we all thoroughly enjoy. 

We are currently the unofficial wooden spoon holders of the London Beach Rugby competition held in August 2014 and would like to thank our sponsor for the event, the Institute of Sport and Exercise Health

We have had recent success in the UH cup, winning in 2018 and 2015, as well as being the current champions of UH 7s, Tenzing London 7s and South East 7s.
