Cardiff University RFC
Back in 2007 I offered a few University rugby clubs a pro-bono year with RuckinRugby just to get my portfolio up and running and offer a top level service to an – essentially – amateur club. Only two Universities took up the offer and in no time at all it was Cardiff University RFC that shone out as a professional outfit – going on to win the 2008/09 Varsity. Martyn Fowler did not hesitate to take up the paid service for the following season, telling us that he had a few players who had sited the website as one of the strong reasons behind their opting to study at Cardiff University, having seen online the kind of quality rugby their club was involved in.
The new season saw Cardiff go from strength to strength, achieving their first ever back to back varsity win over Swansea and a complete makeover for their website, which now looks fantastic! Martyn has spent a great deal of time adding content and pushing for his members to get involved.
RuckinRugby hope to strengthen the website again in time for the 2010/11 season with embedded fixtures, results and player stats courtesy of our new relationship with FixturesLive – watch this space.
