The RFU provides free player accident insurance for all university rugby clubs affiliated to the Students Rugby Football Union, offering a crucial service to support student rugby. This central funding means all university teams can be covered against injury and accidents on the field of play.

The RFU Insurance Policy covers male and female, league, merit and development leagues, intra/intermural friendlies, contact and non-contact, and even composite or occasional teams.

To qualify for the cover it is necessary to complete the University Rugby Development Plan (URDP) (MS Excel 1.65MB), which is agreed by the University Rugby Development Officer and submitted to the RFU Students Department. It is essential that the form is completed correctly in order to qualify for the insurance so get in touch if any assistance is required.
