Double Success for Undefeated Southampton Women’s Rugby team


SUWRFC finished their competitive season on a high after securing the BUCS Western Conference cup to go alongside their success in the the Western Conference 2A league.

The team made the trip to Wales, where they won a high scoring match against UW Newport 1st team 43-22.

Helen Keohane felt that the game against Newport “was a great match to round off the perfect undefeated season. As a team we showed great fighting spirit with some beautifully timed passes combined with some excellent runs. We’ve really developed as a team this season, and I’m so proud of all the girls.”

The side have also won ten out of ten league matches this year to secure their place as one of the best university women’s rugby teams in the country. On their route to glory this year they recorded a number of gigantic wins including a 103 – 0 thrashing of local rivals Solent.
