About Rugby League (Men's)
Description of club
Rugby League is known as the Club of The Year. The Club is arguably the most welcoming and accepting sport club at the University of Northampton that has a diverse intake of many walks of life.
Some of the main reasons you should join are!
Brotherhood nature- Meet mates for life and share incredible lifelong experiences.
1 competitive team and 1 social team- Opportunity for all to play no matter ability.
Only University Sport team to provide personal Strength & Conditioning and programmes
Biggest presence on campus- The club has its own unique nickname identity as the Gremlins with our own team colours and clothing range.
Partake in a tougher, faster and exciting variation of Rugby that has many transferable skills to and from rugby union.
Regardless of ability, we welcome all.
Some chose to partake just socially, others just competitively and many do both. There is something for everyone at the club including yourself!
You! Have the opportunity to be a part of an exceptional club from the start of your studies on field and off field.
What sets us apart from other sports at Northampton is our history of producing multiple national level players, semi- professionals and die-hard links with our alumni, the friends you make and will continue to make are not just for 3 years but for life!

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
