Men's Rugby Union

Loughborough Rugby is proud to offer the opportunity to enjoy Rugby Union at every level. Whether you're at the top of your game, an aspiring coach or want to play for fun, our programmes offer you the chance to maximise your development through an extensive support package.

Performance

Our Performance Teams compete in RFU National 1 (Tier 3) and in BUCS Super Rugby, the top tier of University rugby.  The Rugby Programme benefits from formal partnerships with England 7s, the RFU and most recently Leicester Tigers, which enhances our ability to provide a professional rugby environment where players can reach their potential.

Athletic Union Club

Along with BUCS Super Rugby, Loughborough Students RFC teams also compete in three additional BUCS leagues, playing against other institutions’ first XV’s that provide challenging fixtures all the way through the club.  The depth of talent that we attract ensures a competitive programme where player development is the key focus and where players often progress through to higher levels during their time with us.

Hall Sport (IMS)

We encourage you to compete in Rugby for you halls of residence in IMS competitions held throughout the year. A friendly, yet competitive league gives you the chance to compete alongside your friends for the coveted title each year. The best players from each hall are then selected for the IMS All Stars programme where you'll go head to head in an IMS vs BUCS fixture.

Coaching and volunteering

Within most sports there are a range of sports volunteering roles and opportunities for you to get involved and gain experience in. This ranges from coaching and officiating to events, marketing and media and sport science support.
