Men's Rugby Club

Men's Rugby Club

Welcome to Cardiff University RFC.

The Men's team currently run four teams that compete nationwide in the BUCS Leagues with the introduction of a fifth team in 2017/18. The flagship of the Club is the 1XV who will compete in the BUCS Super Rugby league for the first time this season, having gained promotion in the 2017/18. The league will welcome the UK's most elite rugby teams to do battle at Llanrumney and Cardiff Arms Park, with a select of showcase games being broadcasted on national television through Freesports UK (Sky Ch 422, Virgin Media Ch 553, BT Ch 95, Talk Talk Ch 95, Freesat Ch 252 and Freeview Ch 95). 

Commitment to the rugby club can be tailored to meet an individuals academic or external rugby needs, with a range of opportunities for both playing and social members.

The highlight of the rugby calendar is the Annual Welsh Varsity Match. For the 2018 Varsity, the Liberty Stadium provided the stage for our boys to retain the honours for the first time since 2009, which saw around 15,000 students come together to watch our boys in red and black defeat Swansea for the third time that season. Varsity is an incredible day for all club members. Other highlights include weekly socials which are not to be missed, organised away days to support our boys and a tour at the end of the year.
