They won the student comp. The first team other than Leeds Met to do so since 2006. Thats pretty strong.


Not true Gav, Loughborough finished top in 2009-2010 season.

he BUCS Championships (what Glouscester have pulled of) are like the play-offs. They've won the minor premiership, but the trophy is engraved with the winner of the comp they're now not in. This is what Leeds Met have a stranglehold on.

They have now been told by BUCS they must enter so they are now playing in it.

I stand corrected. Lovely stuff.

The University of Gloucestershire All Golds Academy will provide eight players for the South West of England Colleges Rugby League squad when the national trials take place at Nottingham University on March 23.

What a mess. How could this not have been foreseen? Are they basically intending to use the same players all year round?

Some are the same, though they held trials and have signed up some 'non students' (i.e those not at the Uni). My guess is that these will make up most of the NRC squad and the students will join in when they've finished. I doubt that many will play both.
