BLOG | Women's Rugby Union Vs Exeter


History was made earlier this month in the first BUCS National League, beating the reigning champions Exeter, and being the only team in the league to receive a bonus point.

The girls were ready and determined to make their mark on the brand-new Women’s Rugby Union Super League. Exeter was going to be one of the biggest games of the season, and a win would set an unprecedented start to the season.Exeter haven’t lost a game in two years and as a result have been BUCS Champions for the past couple of years.

A united front, the girls get ready to face the Exeter side, having an intense preseason, it was time to show what all that hard work, has come to.  Captain: Brogan Churm announced, “The girls have worked really hard. We are ready to put in some big hits, and make sure we are together as a team.”

Dynamic play, cohesive leadership and overall good atmosphere on the pitch lead to an early lead for Northumbria 29-10. With Exeter still pushing back, Northumbria proved relentless, with a score of 46-17 within the second half. As the final whistle blew, Northumbria finished with a massive win of 53-17. 

Not only does this result show the persistence and hard work of the girls, but how up and coming Women’s Rugby is within the North East. Being a united team, and making sure everyone is having fun on and off the field at all times is our main teams’ ethos.
