Fixtures Released

The coaching and management team have been hitting the refresh button all morning but the email from BUCS HQ has landed and we are pleased to share with you the fixtures below for ALL our UBRFC teams.

The 1st XV have a very tough year yet again in the BUCS South 1 league which has the addition of a heavily backed Brunel University who stormed the South 2 league last season as well as the always impressive Exeter sides. Local universities Hartpury and Bath add some rivalry spice to the fixture list and not forgetting the two universities over the bridge.

Joe Goodman, Head of Rugby said "Our aim as always is promotion, we will do everything we can do to give this squad the best possible chance of that. We are delighted we have Chris Horsman and Shane Claridge for another season as we look to build on last season. As always we strive to ensure the players connect, lead and excel on and off the field".

The 2 XV are just a tier below the 1st XV in Western 1A league and have a winnable league having narrowly missed out on the top spot last season. There are 3 Exeter sides in 1A next season meaning the 2nd XV will be making the M5 a home from home.

Club Manager Olly Slym said "There will be some changes to next season with the 4th XV becoming our freshers side and being the only English side in that league will challenge the new students. The 5th are in a large league but due to travel will only have 7 games so we will be adding local fixtures in for the 5th team to play, its going to be a great season I'm sure!"
