The partnership also means Ealing Trailfinders – who play professionally in the Greene King IPA Championship, the second tier of English rugby – will oversee the male and female performance rugby programmes at Brunel, with the ambition of becoming a BUCS Super League side in the near future, a move the university hopes will help its teams push towards the BUCS Super Rugby League.
What can we offer?
Ealing Trailfinders will provide coaches, strength and conditioning staff, analysts and a medical team with the aim of creating one of the most comprehensive programmes in the country, allowing students to combine top-level rugby with their academic studies. Students will have the opportunity to join Ealing Trailfinders Academy and train with the professional team around their education, getting access to the club’s two 4G pitches, two gyms and a brand-new medical area.
The new world-class facilities will compliment those already available at Brunel, which include an international-standard pitch, used by the French international team for their World Cup 2015 preparations.
