Hartpury Sport round-up from 09.03.16

Hartpury’s rugby squads were the only teams in action this Wednesday, with the women’s university first team stealing the show as they lifted the BUCS Western Conference Cup.

The squad thrashed Marjons firsts 82-0 with a ruthless display in the final to lift the trophy for the first time, as they showed the same form that has seen the team crowned champions of the BUCS Western 2B League this year.

The men’s first XV agonisingly missed out on a final at Twickenham by a single point as they fell 15-14 to Loughborough firsts in the BUCS National Championship semi-final. You can read a full match report here.

The Under-18s second team racked up plenty of tries as they beat Richard Huish College firsts 74-24 in the AoC League, while the university third XV came out on top in a tight local derby with Gloucestershire firsts as they secured a 15-5 win in the BUCS Western 1A League.
