Queens’ College Rugby Union Football Club encompass both a Men’s and Women’s rugby union team, which compete in the College rugby leagues. The Club structure sees it headed by a President who is aided in its day-to-day running by both the Men’s and Women’s Captains.  A College Fellow acts as Fellow Patron to oversee the long term continuity of the club. Additional Honorary Patrons are invited to serve five year terms. 

We aim to:

  • Be inclusive of all ages, genders and abilities.

  • Actively promote Queens’ Rugby to potential applicants, offer holders and current students. An appointed MCR officer will promote rugby to MCR students. 

  • Create enjoyment on and off the pitch for every member of the Club through a range of social events held throughout the year including the Rugby Dinner. 

  • Encourage players to further their rugby careers by training or playing at University level. 

  • Encourage alumni involvement in the Club through regular results updates and events such as the alumni match.

  • Continuously improve, grow and review as a club.
