UWIC women take trophy at Twickenham 

THE women’s rugby team from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) have taken home the BUSA crown for the third year running.

After a tight game the UWIC squad managed to overcome Northumbria at Twickenham with a final score of 22-20. This is the fifth time that UWIC have won the BUSA women’s rugby championship having lifted the trophy in 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2008.

The teams were neck-a-neck throughout the first half but it was Northumbria who were in the lead at half time. The second half was equally as tight but after an exhausting game it was UWIC who claimed the victory in the twelfth minute of injury time.

Chris Davey, Director of Rugby at UWIC, said: “Once again our women have shown that they are the dominant force in BUSA Women’s Rugby. They are to be congratulated for their efforts against a very well organised and committed Northumbria team. 

“The standard of this competition improves year on year. The girls have put in a great deal of effort this year along with their coaches Kylie Wilson, Alan Sheppard and conditioning coach Dai Watts, to ensure that it is UWIC women’s rugby who are setting the standards in this competition, long may it continue.”
