SU Statement on Competitive Men's Student Rugby

Monday 11-03-2019 - 16:54

Update: Thursday 14 March, 2019
It has come to our attention that some individuals involved in competitive men’s student rugby may have engaged in conduct incompatible with that expected of all members of the University community.  
These concerns have been reported to us, the University, and to the Police who are carrying out appropriate investigations.  Reports to other relevant agencies have also been provided.  A number of students have been suspended from the University and all competitive men’s student rugby activity is on hold while the concerns are investigated.  
USWSU expects the highest standards of personal behaviour from our members and we have zero tolerance of behaviour that falls below that standard.  
Our values are inclusiveness, diversity and equality and are embedded in all of our activities.
If you have been affected in any way, or require further support please email the Education and Welfare officer for your region.

Original Statement: Monday 11 March, 2019
The Students’ Union regrets having to take the unusual step of suspending the competitive Men’s Rugby teams from all associated activities.  This is as a consequence of alleged cumulative unacceptable behaviours, and allows us the time to investigate properly. 
If you feel you have been affected in any way, would like to disclose something to us in confidence, or require further support please email the Student Activities Officer Rhys Pewtner at by Friday 15th March.  Alternatively, you may contact the Students’ Union emergency contact number on 07753961089.
