University of Hull hosts annual competition
The annual Touch Rugby League competition at the University of Hull proved a great success with 13 teams taking part in the event which was staged over the festive period.
The competition was held in partnership with the University of Hull Campus Sport Programme, the Rugby Football Union and RFL and was open to Higher and Further Education teams.
The Touch Rugby League initiative is aimed at making this fun-filled, socially driven game available to anyone over the age of 16.
90 players – both male and female – took to the field with sides coming from Scarborough, Bridlington and locally from Hull.
The competition was won by Wyke College who beat Hull College 3-0 in the final.
“The event went well despite the cold weather on the day. It was great to see a mix of male and female players competing in a great spirit,” said Chris Charles, RFL League For all All Officer.
Scarlet Sutcliffe, Sports Activity Co-ordinator at the University of Hull added: “Competitions like these are great for the FE sides to come along to the University campus and play in a non-threatening but competitive environment.
“It also gives them an insight into the types of sporting activity they can become involved in if they go on to study at the University of Hull.”
