Rugby Club

Introduction & club history

The club has 3 teams (2 Men and 1 Women) competing in the British University and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues in the Scottish conference.

The 1st XV compete in tier 2A of the conference and the Conference Cup. The 2nd XV are also highly competitive in their bracket. The Ladies struggled with numbers last year but hope to have a fully fit and functional team for the BUCS league this coming year.

The club is also in partnership with local club Currie RFC who have three teams competing across the Scottish Rugby national and regional leagues. Players joining the mens teams are encouraged to attend.

The club also has a strong social side.

  1. To provide an opportunity for any student to participate in a regular form of Rugby appropriate to their desire and ability.
