There is no messing about when it comes to rugby union, this is the real deal.
There are leagues to suit all different levels of competition. Men's and women's teams compete week in, week out in their tiered league structure across the whole United Kingdom.
Rugby Union also has a national league for both men's and women's competitions, with the top men's league known as BUCS Super Rugby.
BUCS Super Rugby
The BUCS Super Rugby league sees the best 10 university male rugby teams compete in their own league. At the end of the league season they compete in the Championship Knockout.
BUCS Rugby Sevens
This is the shorter, faster version of the game we all love. Students change the pace of how things are done with two, one day competitions for Championships and Trophy categories.
For London-based students, the London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL) also offers more flexible and social league and knockout competitions for men’s and women’s teams.
