Fixtures Updates | BUCS 18/19 Week Eleven

BUCS Week Eleven gets underway early, with Thursday Night Football in the Premiership North, as Durham and Leeds Carnegie clash for the second time in five days! This is followed up with the Prem South action getting underway on Saturday, before a stacked slate of fixtures across all three tiers on Sunday afternoon.

We’ll continually update this article as any information comes in relating to BUCS Week Eleven fixtures.



Premiership North: Saints/Carnegie bring TNF to BUCS

The Durham Saints and Leeds Beckett Carnegie have rearranged their weather-lost Week Nine matchup for 1900 this Thursday evening.


Premiership South: Destroyers @ Lions game back on – on Saturday

Originally scheduled for Week Eight, the Portsmouth Destroyers trip to the Birmingham Lions was lost due to botch in the Destroyers travel plans – however, the two teams have worked hard to reschedule the fixture for this Saturday!


1A South: Knights and Cougars clash back on the menu

The Reading Knights will host the Kingston Cougars in a crucial clash in the 1A South. Originally scheduled for Week Nine, the fixture was lost to adverse weather conditions, but is scheduled up for this Sunday instead – notable, as the Knights’ home fixtures are typically played on Saturdays.


2A North: Raptors and Bears flip fixture

We originally had this fixture down as the Bradford Bears hosting the Liverpool Raptors, but seven-game schedule length in this conference and the woes the Bears have had with their home pitch this year, it looks as though the two outfits have chosen to flip the venue, with the Raptors now playing host on Sunday.


2A North: Bangor/Leeds swap venue

Originally scheduled as a home game, this Sunday the Bangor MudDogs will instead travel to the Leeds Gryphons.


2A South: Buccaneers don’t set sail, WolfPack take the walkover

The BNU Buccaneers have struggled mightily with roster numbers this season, so far taking to the field for only one fixture. While we’ve received no official notification of a withdrawal from their 2018/19 campaign, it looks like they won’t be making the trip to the City Wolfpack this weekend, with the game instead being awarded as a walkover to the hosts.


Saturday fixtures for Week Nine:
  • Premiership South: UWE Bullets v Swansea Titans
  • Premiership South: Birmingham Lions v Portsmouth Destroyers
