Description

London and South East University Merit Festivals

The aim of the London and South East University Merit Festivals is to provide regular playing opportunities to students who are not involved in their BUCS teams, through the delivery of local festivals.

If you have extra players that will not be playing BUCS rugby on a Wednesday afternoon we have the playing opportunity for you!!

Festival dates attached.

These festivals are aimed at your new and developing players and as such are social festivals. With this in mind the playing format (both playing numbers and playing time) will be flexible according to the players available on the day.

If (X) university only has 10 players on the day we ask that you still attend – we will either ask other teams to match numbers or we’ll merge them with another team so that they can play full 15-a-side games.

If a university does not have enough front row players the games will go ahead with uncontested scrums or again we’ll ask for other players to join you. We just want you to play!!

The festival will be run and organised by the Merit Festival Organiser with RFU Staff in attendance and will be able to offer some coaching should you require it.

All matches where possible will be refereed by students that are confident to do so with the support of RFU Staff.

For the purposes of this friendly competition we ask that universities stick to the ethos of ‘social rugby’ by ensuring they invite appropriate players and keep Rugby’s Core Values in mind at all times.

Under Lights playing opportunities.

There are multiple playing opportunities locally that will be played under lights. These festivals are very much the same as the merit festivals but will be played against local clubs that are trying to develop new teams and will have the same social ethos.
