Students' RFU AGM & University Rugby Q&A Panel
The Students' Rugby Football Union (SRFU), is the Constituent Body of the RFU governing the university game for English universities. On Thursday 1 July 2020 at 3.30pm, we will be holding a virtual AGM. Immediately after the AGM, there will be a Q&A session with panellists from the RFU, BUCS and SRFU. Colleagues on the panel will be in a position to answer your questions. In addition, they will give you an update on Return to Play for next season.
Sign up and ask your question on the link below.
Students' RFU Trustee Board Recruitment
The Students' RFU (SRFU) are seeking to appoint two new trustees to join its existing Trustee Board and support the organisation in delivering its aspirations of making student rugby inclusive and easy to access for any student who wishes to be involved in the game. We are especially interested in hearing from prospective candidates who have an interest/expertise in the following areas:
Student Representative: a current or recent graduate with close connections to the student game.
Female Game Representative: experience working in the university sector or sports development, with an active interest in the development of the female game.
For more information on the roles and how to apply click below. The closing date is Thursday 17 June.
Win a session with England Academy coaches
As part of UK coaching week, we want to set your rugby players and volunteers a challenge in producing some short, snappy video content. This is aimed at school and college leavers who may be joining your university to tell them why they should get involved in rugby there.
For more information and to register to be in with a chance of winning a coaching session with England Academy coaches, click below.

We were delighted to announce the winners of the University Rugby Awards 2021 last month. You can read the winners' citations and watch their videos by category below.
Update GMS – New staff and student contacts
As new staff and students move into key rugby roles, please ensure your golden roles on the RFU Game Management System are up to date. This includes the data officers as they will be receiving important game communications in the coming weeks.
