CURUFC is a wholly amateur student rugby club aiming to offer a rugby environment as ‘professional’ as it can be. There are three regular teams; the Blues, the LX Club and the U21 XV together with occasional fixtures for the U21A XV and the Colleges XV.
The Blues have a strong midweek fixture list incorporating top professional clubs and universities whilst the LX Club and U21 generally play at weekends. In addition in the Lent term an U20 XV competes in the RFU national constituent body U20 competition.
Teams are selected on merit and all teams receive coaching, strength and conditioning guidance and medical support from our well qualified staff.
The club has a great tradition of touring and the start of this current season saw the Blues team in Japan and the club squad in Languedoc – Roussillon in the South of France.
On midweek afternoons there are 20 College teams who compete in a structured league system. There are three leagues with each team playing against the other on a home and away basis. The Lent term is used for the knockout Cuppers tournament with the finals being held at Grange Road during the last week of term. In addition the season ends with a Colleges sevens tournament.
