Club Background

Men's Rugby at Cardiff Met has a very strong club programme and is one of our Focus Sports within the Students' Union. The Rugby Club has been identified as a high performance club and, under the guidance of the Performance Director, aims to achieve the very highest standards. Focus Sports benefit from additional funding, which includes a number of funded gym memberships and access to all sports facilities for focus athletes, strength and conditioning, nutritional support and discounted physiotherapy. The Club also benefits from performance analysis support, using training and game footage to develop its players and coaches alike.

The Club runs the following teams: 1st XV, 2nd XV, 3rd XV, 4th XV, 5th XV, Freshers (Two teams) and Youth XV.

In addition to the newly developed BUCS Super Rugby competition, Cardiff Met RFC also plays in the WRU Championship, competing against teams across Wales.
