    Just wanted to know what people thought is the best university in the uk for Rugby. Obviously I know Loughborough are amazing and Bath are quite good but don't know much about any other uni teams that might be quite decent.

    COME ON THE 'PRI! http://www.hartpury.ac.uk/Hartpury-C...ss-at-Hartpury.

    They also run a "proper" rugby club, Hartpury RFC, which is at level 6 in the RFU league structure. If they get promoted this year (18/18, top of the league) and next, then they'll be in National League 2 (South), which is semi-professional. Not too bad for a uni team .

    Lougborough dominated this year, our 1sts won the championship and our 2nds won the trophy. This on top of coming 2nd in national league 2 south.
