About BUCS Super Rugby

Returning for a third season in 2018-19, the BUCS Super Rugby league brings together the very best British university rugby programmes across England and Wales – and the University of Bath is proud and honoured to be a founder member.

The competition – organised by BUCS [British Universities and Colleges Sport] and supported by the Rugby Football Union and the Welsh Rugby Union – has been designed to raise the profile of university rugby, progress the level of performance to National League standard and establish a pathway to elite and professional rugby.

The University of Bath is one of only ten rugby-playing higher-education institutions in England and Wales to compete in Super Rugby, with the Blue and Gold having reached the semi-finals of the BUCS Rugby Championships in both seasons so far.

Home matches are played on the athletics infield at the University of Bath Sports Training Village and The Recreation Ground, home of Bath Rugby – admission is free.
