Welcome to Rugby League (w)

Rugby League (W)

We’re making history and having fun in the process. We are the second university in the country to have a Women’s Rugby League team.

Our society is open to all players of any ability; whether you’re a pro or you have never touched a rugby ball in your life, you are more than welcome. We are a new team as of last year and we are all learning together. We have weekly training focusing on both skills and fitness.

Women’s Rugby League is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and we would love for you to join our journey!

About us

We compete in the local WRLA Yorkshire & Lancashire league, but we are heading towards a BUCS league within the next few years when more universities join the sport. We have two wonderful qualified coaches who have helped us every step of the way, who not only deliver excellent coaching but are also part of the family.


We are a warm and welcoming club with a wide range of social activities. We all enjoy an occasional drink, but this is not the focus of society socials! From going out on Wednesday nights to sober meals as a team, there is something for everyone. We feel it’s really important to bond both on and off the pitch as it enhances the enjoyment of the sport. It’s being part of the family which makes the experience so fun. Like our Facebook page to find out more about our upcoming weekly socials and for all the details.
