About the Club

We are looking for keen rugby players (intermediate and advanced) that have played a good standard of rugby before coming to UoM. If you are a fit, tenacious and likeable student athlete then we want you! We train three times a week with matches held on Wednesday afternoons. For any talent that falls through the net, we will be sending out scouts into the Campus Leagues. We provide three experienced coaches for our three teams and a team physio.

We encourage the development of rugby from all abilities, by creating a fun atmosphere at training. By creating strong bonds within and across each team, and training hard we aim to improve the professionalism of the club, and push each player to fulfill their potential.

Club Philosophy

We train especially hard to compete with other Universities who also play Rugby at the highest level. UMRFC has a family feel, where many first-years meet their closet friends at Uni resulting in many rugby houses come second and third year! Whilst we work hard at improving ourselves as teams and as individuals, we also enjoy many social events and team bonding sessions. We also give the opportunity to venture out on two tours this year with the club (Ski Trip and Saloufest).
