The regular BUCS season is well under way now. There has been a start-stop season for the 1st XV; Away vs Brunel was postponed due to no ref and Away vs Imperial Medics couldn't field a front row so we claimed the walk over.
The 2nd XV took a heavy defeat 71-5 vs. Writtle College, but bounced back strong with a solid 61-7 victory over Hertfordshire 2's at home. Match report to be up soon.
The regular season has started! There was a double header with both the 1st XV and 2nd XV playing at home. The 1st XV played Kent 1st XV and laid down an impressive marker with a 58-12 win. The 2nd XV played QM 2nd XV, but unfortunately lost 19-0. Go to the 1st and 2nd team pages for match reports.
A nice sunny day in Chissy was the perfect setting for UH 7's this year, unfortunately despite a strong showing in the group stages, Barts 1st VII were knocked out in the semi-finals to RUMs 1st VII in the last play of extra time. The eventual winners were ICMS 1st VII who won convincingly and retain the UH 7's cup.
It is that time of year again, UH 7's, and this time it is back at Fortress Chislehurst! The 7's is this Sunday, 6th October, and we will be hosting all the London medical schools, KO around 10am. We will be putting out 2 strong teams and aiming to regain the UH 7's trophy, all support will be welcome!
UH Cup Final
After a convincing win over St. George's, BLRFC has retained the UH Cup for 2013-14. Man of the Match was Charlie Warburton. The last time any team other than Imperial retained the title was St. Barts in 1976/77. This is a truly massive achievement, and the boys deserve massive praise.
