Sam Bailey, Men's Rugby President: "Being shortlisted for the Tom Miller Award for Social Impact by the England University RFU is a testament to the dedication both on and off the rugby field from all who participated. It's a humbling acknowledgment of the hard work and commitment we poured into making a small difference in the community. This recognition fuels our passion to continue as a platform for positive change. Regardless of the outcome, we're proud to have our efforts recognised."

Sarah Ruff, Sports Coordinator: "I am so proud that the work the Men's rugby team did during Movember has been recognised by the Students RFU.  Not only did they raise an incredible amount of money for charity but they were key in supporting the Students' Union in hosting the first ever Guys Night In."
