BUCS Rugby Union

Our BUCS programme is led by developing coaching staff who are constantly striving to improve both individual and team performance.

Loughborough Students RFC (LSRFC) is a student-based rugby club made up of around 150 players.  Approximately 85 of those players participate in our BUCS 2-4 teams playing against other institutions’ first XV’s in BUCS Tier 1 and BUCS Tier 2 and below, providing challenging fixtures throughout the season.  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.


A normal training week includes:

  • 1 Match (Wednesday)
  • 2 Team rugby sessions
  • Additional units and skills sessions
  • Self-directed S&C sessions
