Freshers week………

At the Fresher's Fair, multiple stalls are eager for you to sign up to join their club/sports team. Many try and bribe you via free stationary - is it really worth signing up to the debating society in return for a free fridge magnet? Everyone will give...

The pinnacle of world rugby has arrived in Japan, and no one is more excited than us girls here at UYWRUFC. While the matches are not at prime-time kick-off, they are breakfast and brunch time and we’ve made our schedules fit around the games. Rugby has been embraced b...

There's never a greater sight that seeing both teams step onto the pitch at the same time, and yesterday provided just that as UYWRUFC took over the 22 Acres for an afternoon of great rugby. The 1st XV took on Sheffield Hallam as arguably the top contenders for top spo...
