If you're interested in playing University Rugby whether you are a beginner or an experienced player, come down and get involved (we are a very welcoming group). Last year saw our skill level vary from county standard to having never thrown (or caught) a ball in their life.
Joining a sports team changes your university experience and we take our socialising just as seriously as our rugby (thank god!!)
Last year the Men's 1s saw a very positive and successful year:
- winning the South Eastern 5B title whilst only losing one game
- With the starting up of 02 touch on friday night for players wanting to play and exercise without the full contact element
- Successful running of Thomas Mulquin (Old Boys versus current Greenwich 1st team) where we successfully raised £1500 for the Wooden Spoon charity
The position we finished in the league personally left me feeling proud to be a part of a strong and close knit team. What with the help of new sponsorship next season we are hoping to achieve back to back promotions in a far more difficult and challenging league with a lot more university 1st teams.
We have attempted, very successfully, to make sure everyone gets lots of game time this season through competing in multiple RFU Merit festivals around London which gives the oppurtunity for players with less minutes to play rugby as well.
We train every Monday at Blacheaths Well Hall Ground (286 to Well Hall Road) with a promt 7:30pm start on the astro training pitches. It is a 5 minute drive from Avery Hill Campus by car. Our matches are on Wednesdays, normally with a kick off time of 2pm where we also play home games on Blackheaths First Team pitch.

We will be able to provide answers to any questions you may have. More information is available at the Facebook page, Instagram and pitchero page (below).
If this is not for you: no worries. I'd still recommend looking at other sports teams or societies. It will make your university experience so much better!
See you in September,
