Not just a team but a family too!
WHO ARE WE?
We are a warm, friendly group of girls who also happen to be the current undefeated champions of the BUCS Women's Western tier 2 league but then covid happened... This year we've moved up a league and need your help to smash this league too! We also have an exciting new development squad to make sure everyone gets a go and a chance to develop their skills! So whether you're a seasoned player or have never picked up a ball before - we have opportunities for everyone and will happily welcome you all!

Rugby is a great way to throw yourself into the university experience, make a whole range of new friends and perfect for that extra bit of fitness as well. Off the pitch, we have weekly socials ending up at Pams for the infamous Sharkies! We also meet up and socialise together outside of that too, even if it's just hitting the library!
We aren't just a team, we are a family....you are guaranteed to make friends for life!

One thing we can pride ourselves on, if not for our rugby skills, is our ability to throw a great social! From superheroes to the whole cast of the nativity we know how to have a laugh while looking like muppets!
Our Rugby Socials occur every other Wednesday night and usually require fancy dress. The crazier the better!! We will be doing lots of socials this year to make up for all the covid missed in-person socials!
At the end of the rugby season, we pack up our fancy dress and suncream to head down to Bournemouth for an incredible weekend of music, camping, playing a bit of rugby sevens and having a good boogie! It's an incredible weekend that you don't want to miss out on!
