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 and train on thursday evenings. All training uses the facilities at Plymouth Albion. There are links to a local touch league where members of our club frequently enter sides for a run around and skill improvement. There are also plans to instigate a seven a side team for those players with the correct physical stature. 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 Dan and Dallen. 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. The second team had a turbulent season last year, plagued with injuries and illness. Under new leadership of Harrison, promotion is the aim for this year. The third and fourth team operate as a feeder team into the BUCS teams, allowing all ranges of players to represent the university against competitive opposition. Last season, many of the third and fourth team p[layers went on to represent the first and second team. However the third team have managed to enter the P&D combination league for the first time which will provide regular competitive matches this season. 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.
