BUCS Super Rugby Final, 4pm kick off 

The kings of consistency, never finishing lower than second in the table and this season’s league winners, Exeter, head to North London aiming to achieve a National Championship three-peat. They face last season’s league winners Loughborough in a repeat of the epic 2023 final, in which Exeter triumphed 48-44 after extra time. 

Watch the rerun here. (Available from 6pm on 10 April)

Both sides were pushed hard in their semi-final clashes, where Exeter’s strength in depth shone though in a bruising 40-27 home victory over Bath, while Loughborough put together a spirited fightback to prevail 37-26 at the expense of Hartpury. 

Exeter were an unstoppable force against their final opponents at home in Round 3 of the season, putting up 57 points, but in the return clash in January, the African Violet pushed them close, coming up just short in a 20-27 defeat. 

Women’s National League Final, 7pm kick off 

Loughborough will come up against defending champions Hartpury in the Women’s National Championship Final after overcoming Exeter 38-34 in a humdinger of a semi-final in Devon. 

They will have to dethrone the queens of BUCS Women’s Rugby Union, Hartpury, who are also chasing a National Championship three-peat. Hartpury topped the league table this season, taking back-to-back titles and receiving a quarter final bye before overcoming Cardiff Met 45-31 in a home semi final. 

Loughborough will take immense confidence from the last clash between the two sides however, when they prevailed 29-17 away from home in February. 

It promises to be an incredible day of rugby, and you can either take it in live from StoneX Stadium or watch both games on our YouTube.

Tickets are £10 for students and £13 for adults and include entry to both finals.
