Northumbria Sport has a thriving Team Northumbria rugby union programme. Rugby union is included within the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competition, with Team Northumbria athlete scholarships available.

Team Northumbria, in partnership with Northumberland Rugby Union and the Rugby Football Union, has successfully developed its athlete pathway to incorporate high-quality coaching from Head Coach Darren Fearn, alongside Strength and Conditioning, physiotherapy, nutrition and psychological support.

Alongside our own world class facilities, Team Northumbria also has access to Kingston Park Stadium as part of their partnership with the Newcastle Falcons. This provides a fantastic venue for fixtures such as Clash of the Titans, which is held annually in October.
