Men's Rugby League
Welcome to the University of Liverpool’s Mens Rugby League.
LURLFC has been one of the most developed sports team among the university societies. Over the past 5 years the team has made great strides to become one of the highest ranked BUCS playing sport in the University. LURLFC boasts one team, one coach, several training and playing facilities of a high standard and a great, friendly club atmosphere. The club caters for all levels of ability ranging from rugby union converts to beginners, with some students coming from semi-pro backgrounds and it welcomes a wide range of students into the club.
The 1st team currently competes in the BUCS Northern 2A league and are a very competitive outfit which focus on results.
2018-19 looks to be a promising season for LURLFC, our coach Anthony Murray has both playing and expansive coaching experience and is currently also the first team coach of North Wales Crusaders who compete in national league 1.
The first team, led by Will Spencer, will hope that the team can bounce back from a disappointing season in northern 2A. The club had promise to win the league but was badly hit by a group of injuries. With a good intake the club will now be able to focus on not only winning the league, but also winning both varsity and Christie cup.
Training for the club takes places at Wyncote sports Ground on Monday evenings with a prompt 17:30 start and will run until 19:30, this session will involve doing the basics and correcting errors from previous matches. On a Tuesday a session runs from 19:30 - 20:30 to allow for the squad to go through a team run through, just to settle nerves and make finishing touches to ahead of their matches, which take place on a Wednesday afternoon.
Strength & Conditioning
The club is striving hard to mirror the professionalism of the modern game. Our fitness coach who is part of the British Strength and Conditioning Association runs weekly fitness sessions, and there is a healthy gym culture amongst the keener members of the club. The university gym has recently undergone drastic refurbishment, so there is now a much wider variety of facilities for players to use, with a fantastic free weights and resistance machines section, state of the art cardiovascular equipment and specific injury prevention equipment.
The social side of LURLFC takes place on Wednesday’s after matches. We have weekly socials, monthly Athletic Union (fancy dress - with all the other Uni sport teams), not to mention special events through the year (Super league grand final, christmas party and many more).
LURLFC also go on tour which is affordable but worthwhile trip and takes place during the Easter vacation.
The success of the club is largely down to the close bond between each and every player, with everyone encouraged to be involved.
