What can Cardiff Medicals RFC offer you?

Cardiff Medicals RFC offers a unique experience to all students, particularly drawing from healthcare courses. We combine the right brand of exciting rugby with an unrivalled social ethos.

Both our 1st and 2nd XV’s compete within the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues, as well as competing in the National Association of Medical Schools Cup (NAMS) and the WRU club’s SWALEC cup.

The social aspect of our club allows like-minded future students to enjoy the other side of rugby, not only with other students, but with Old Boys who have gone before them, creating lifelong friendships. We run almost weekly socials on a Wednesday night after games, as well as bigger social functions such as Christmas Dinner and Old Boys dinner (our annual black-tie event). This year we will also be touring Dublin in early 2020.

We also have a team gym session on Thursday evenings at the Cardiff University Fitness and Conditioning Centre. These are a great way to improve your size, strength and fitness as well as being a social event for you to bond with the team. The sessions are run by the Fitness and Conditioning staff in the gym.

Freshers Fayre

The Heath Park Fresher’s Fayre is held on the 1st Monday of Fresher’s Fortnight at the Sports & Social Club, Heath Park Campus. It is a great place to meet fellow students and sign up to the wealth of sports clubs and societies that are available to healthcare students.

Importantly, if you are interested in playing rugby at university, you will be able to meet current members of the club for a chat and more information. You will also be able to join the club there and then.

Pre-season Training

Pre-season training starts in early September and will continue on Mondays, Wednesday’s and Thursdays until the BUCS season gets under way at the beginning of October. During this time there will also be a number of pre-season matches specifically for Freshers to allow everybody to get some match practice.

All prospective students are welcome to get involved from the outset, but as the 1st year term doesn’t start until the end of September don’t worry if you’re not around.

We are also running a Curry Social in early October as a way to get to know new faces over a decent curry and a few beers.

NAMS vs Bristol (Medics Varsity)

It was a fine day as the Meds travelled across the bridge for their NAMS opener and annual Medics Varsity match against Bristol. The likely lads of BBJ, Westlife and Dr Wiggil had all made the effort to come back and support on the touch line and were already exerting their authority over the quivering […]
