BUCS Super Rugby
Back for a second season in 2017-18, the BUCS Super Rugby league brings together the very best British university rugby programmes across England and Wales – and the University of Bath is proud and honoured to be a founder member.
The competition – organised by BUCS [British Universities and Colleges Sport] and supported by the Rugby Football Union and the Welsh Rugby Union – has been designed to raise the profile of university rugby, progress the level of performance to National League standard and establish a pathway to elite and professional rugby.
The University of Bath is one of only nine rugby-playing higher-education institutions in England and Wales to compete in Super Rugby, with the Blue and Gold – sponsored by IKON Construction – looking to build on their fine fifth-placed finish in the 2016-17 debut season. They also reached the semi-finals of the BUCS Rugby Championships.
Home matches are played on the athletics infield at the University of Bath Sports Training Village and The Recreation Ground, home of Bath Rugby – admission is free.
