Following Pi’s discovery about the University College London rugby team’s disbandment, we are
able to reveal that the team are facing disciplinary action from the Union over a few, complex
The team have seven days in which to appeal, although UCLU have told Pi that they continue to
uphold their decision to disaffiliate the team.
The rugby team are in the process of launching their appeal and as a result, Pi cannot yet disclose
the reasons behind the disbandment.
Neither the team nor the union are yet to make an official statement. Although, the team were under

Kings, the future of UCL rugby seems uncertain.
Once the appeal has been decided, Pi media will be the first to bring you both sides of the story as
well as the reasons behind the proposed disbandment.
Look out as well for a special feature about the rugby team from Pi News and Pi Sports.
