Welcome to our weekly roundup of results from Wednesday’s BUCS matches for Nottingham Trent University.

When does it become socially unacceptable to say Happy New Year? If not yet, then Happy New Year!

BUCS is back and so is the cold, but you can always expect a warm review from your favourite weekly update. There were 14 games scheduled for action on Wednesday 20 January, with 11 at home and three away. One away match was rearranged, and of the matches that took place, NTU won 38.46% of them (five from 14 completed). Our season win percentage currently stands at 44.61 %. Nottingham Trent University sits in 15th position in the BUCS table.

Biggest result

This category can stand for the team that won by the greatest margin, or alternatively can mean the result that means the most in the context.

The winner of this award this week is Men’s Rugby Union first team. Quite simply, they demolished a Birmingham first XV side that now lies perilously close to the drop zone. Scoring eight tries and seven conversions, they prevented Birmingham from scoring even a single try, denying them a bonus point in any way. A comprehensive victory and well deserved as Biggest Result.

Team performance

This category can be won by anyone – team, players, or sports clubs for overall performance as a group.

Two contenders for this award this week, with both Women’s Hockey second team and Women’s Tennis winning their first match of the year. With not much more to go on that that (get us your updates girls!) then the award is split between the two.
