Players will have up to five hours a week of rugby related activities, which will include skills work, fitness sessions, match play training, and competitive matches on a Wednesday afternoon. As women’s rugby is a developing sport, the College academy programme is dependent on the numbers recruited each year, so if you love rugby, join in force with your friends. When numbers allow, the College will enter the Association of Colleges Sport League and cups as well as festivals, friendly matches and tournaments at 15s, 10s and 7s. Players will also join other colleges across the South West to train and play a number of barbarian style festivals and fixtures. Players are also given the opportunity to represent the College at a South West Colleges level and are encouraged to play in the county and regional set up within the Rugby Football Union.
