The University of Liverpool Rugby League Club will be 50 years old on 15 March 2018 and to celebrate, the club and its members spanning the full period will be getting together to enjoy a full weekend of activity.

Not only is it the 50th anniversary of the club, which follows on from Leeds University who celebrated in 2017, but it is officially the 50th anniversary of Student Rugby League. On 15 March 1968, the University of Liverpool hosted Leeds University in the first ever official match between two university teams.
