Introducing The 1875 Club...

To learn more about DURFC's new membership programme, please go to The 1875 Club page in the menus. 



We would be delighted to hear from students who may be keen to come to Durham and happy to provide 1-1 meetings (Zoom / Telephone) regarding the rugby programme and personalised visits and scholarship advice.


Here it is worth noting that we have monitoring systems in place which enable us to support UCAS applications from top class rugby players who also meet the demanding entry requirements of the University – so the earlier we know of student interest the earlier we can help them

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.
