Women’s Rugby (UBMSWRFC)

The official page for UBMSWRFC, AKA The Rugby Birds.

For the past 39 years, UBMS Women’s Rugby (AKA the Rugby Birds) has been providing the ladies of MedSoc with an opportunity to develop their fitness and rugby skills, attend a whole host of marvellous socials and forge friendships that will last a lifetime (we ain’t joking). This society is one of the most inclusive and friendly societies, welcoming new Birds from all courses and of all abilities. The vast majority of us had never touched a rugby ball before university, but through fitness classes and Tuesday and Wednesday training sessions with our Captain, Vice-Captain and wonderful coaches, we have grown to love the sport and been transformed into semi-professional rugby legends.

Once we’ve mastered the basics, the team heads off to challenge other medical schools and local sides of similar ability, which is always a lot of fun. Our notorious socials obviously deserve a mention too: highlights of the year include Family Meals alongside your newfound birdy family, pub golf, numerous post-match Fabs, and TOUR! Finally, the year culminates in the best night of your life; Rugby Dinner. Birds and boys combine to celebrate the ‘trys’ and tribulations in a night that you won’t forget. So come along for a ruck, a maul, a roll in the mud, or just to socialise with the finest Medsoc members!

Training is held on Wednesday evenings (time and location tbc) and Thursday evenings at 6-7pm on the Bournbrook Pitches.
