With history being made by our men’s rugby league and many teams nearing promotion after last week’s fixtures, tomorrow brings us another action packed #BUCSWednesday and we hope it’s going to be just as fantastic!
This week our clubs have been invited to take part in the #TiedTogether campaign which seeks to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in sport. Show your support by signing the Charter and getting your teams to wear rainbow laces for their matches this week and make sure you tweet your pictures with the hashtag #TiedTogether.
Here’s our pick of the games taking place on Wednesday 10th February!

This Wednesday, it’s a Manchester derby. They face Manchester 2s down at the Cheshire Campus Centre. Manchester 2s are level on points with a game in hand ,therefore it’s a must win game for our men’s team.
