Introduction and club history

The club has two men's teams competing in the British University and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues and also in the Scottish Conference Cup.

The 1st XV compete in tier 1A and in the Conference Cup. The 2nd XV are also highly competitive in their bracket, also competing in the Conference Cup. While we don't have a specific ladies' team on campus, our partner club Currie RFC have an excellent ladies' set up, nicknamed The Chieftains, where Heriot-Watt ladies are more than welcome to attend. Our on-campus ladies' offering is in the form of mixed touch rugby. Please see the multisport section for more information, or contact any committee member.

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