BUCS Super Rugby Team of the Year and Player of the Year 

After this year's incredible league campaign, which saw DURFC secure the BUCS Super Rugby League Championship, four of our players have made it into the Team of the Year! Huge congratulations to Conteh, Paremain, Bash and Fowlesy for this achievement.

And also, our talisman of a captain Fowlesy was named as the BUCS Super Rugby Player of the Year - very fitting considering the amazing performances, leadership and effort Fowlesy has put in over the season - unreal stuff.
