The committee and players welcome you to the University of Plymouth Men's Rugby Club (UPRFC). We are one of the largest clubs within the university, gaining our prolific reputation on and off the pitch! Our BUCS sides train on Mondays and Fridays, playing matches on Wednesday afternoons. While our third and fourth team play on weekends. All training uses the facilities at Keyham sports grounds. There are links to a local touch league where members of our club frequently enter sides for a run around and skill improvement. Please feel free to contact us and turn up to our stand at the fresher fair if you have any questions and may I take this opportunity to welcome you all to the Men's Rugby Club for what will be one of the best years you will not forget!
Every Wednesday we are led out by our notorious social secs Will and Chris. Be it fancy dress or representing the club in ones, we aim to make sure every single person in Plymouth knows who we are and what we are about. All social dates and information will be put up onto the Facebook page, so make sure you keep an eye out on that.
We currently have two teams that compete in BUCS and two teams that compete against local sides as well as other university teams. The first team have been competitive in South West 1 this year and finished the season mid table, but this year the focus will be on getting the team promoted into Prem B. Our second team has had an incredible display last season acheiving promotion under the leadership of Will Parrot. The third and fourth team are the more social teams with a less intense veiw on the sport but still playing competitivley. Allowing all ranges of players to represent the university and improve their own rugby skills. Last season, many of the third and fourth team players went on to represent the first and second team. Varsity is arguably the most important game of the year, where our first and second teams play against the local rival University of Marjon's.There are opportunities for freshers to represent in this prestigious event, if the hard work is put in. Regardless, the same outcome is demanded by your team mates, fans and university.
