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.

Not really, the winner of championship for the last 3 years is ranked #83 on that page.

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 .

The best 2 teams are UWIC and Hartpury.

The top league is split North and South, here are the teams in these leagues (and therefore the best 14 teams in the country):

SOUTH
1 UWIC Men's 1st 11 9 1 1 316 104 212 28
2 University of Exeter Men's 1st 10 6 0 4 180 159 21 18
3 UWE Hartpury Men's 1st 9 5 1 3 168 114 54 16
4 University of Bath Men's 1st 10 5 0 5 176 223 -47 15
5 University of Bristol Men's 1st 10 4 1 5 197 218 -21 13
6 Swansea University Men's 1st 10 2 1 7 176 189 -13 7
7 St Mary's University College Men's 1st 10 2 0 8 84 290 -206 3*

NORTH
1 Loughborough University Men's 1st 10 10 0 0 302 135 167 30
2 Leeds Metropolitan Carnegie Men's 1st 9 8 0 1 263 95 168 24
3 Newcastle University Men's 1st 9 4 0 5 144 150 -6 12
4 University of Nottingham Men's 1st 10 4 0 6 182 238 -56 12
5 Northumbria University Men's 1st 9 4 0 5 204 242 -38 12

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.
