Rugby Union Men

No elections are currently running

UWE Mens Rugby Union aims to deliver rugby for players of all callibre across 4 teams all playing at their respective levels. All teams will be playing on Wednesdays, with the 1st and 2nd XV competing in BUCS leagues, and the Stormers XV and Highlanders XV competing in a newly developed Tri-counties set-up (TRICCS) which is hosted in North Bristol. 



There are two membership options this year (+ £20 sports fee):

Returners membership (shorts and socks) - £80

Freshers membership (shorts, socks, polo and training top) - £125

We reccommend those now 2nd years who didnt get any kit last year also purchase the freshers membership.

For this you will get access to top level training with Bristol Bears community coaches, strength and conditioning coaching and access to physio sessions if injured. A chance to represent one of UWE's 4 teams every week, with home matches in front of hundreds of fans at Lockleaze Sports Centre. Finally, an oppurtunity to get stuck into all sorts of social activities, with socials every Wednesday at Pam Pam's.
