Fixtures Updates | BUCS 18/19 Week Six

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

A few notable amendments to the originally published schedule this week:


Huddersfield vs Lincoln called off due to exploding floodlight

The Huddersfield Hawks were scheduled to host the Lincoln Colonials this Sunday in a 2A Midlands clash, however, following an exploding floodlight leaving the pitch covered in small shards of glass, the field has been declared unusable.


Gloucestershire forfeit vs Bournemouth due to injuries

Following a disappointing start to their season, the Gloucestershire Gladiators have been forced to forfeit this weekend’s fixture versus the Bournemouth Bobcats due to low roster numbers, reportedly due to a large number of injuries sustained during their opening three fixtures of their campaign.


Bath vs Southampton Postponed due to unuseable pitch

The 1A South West showdown between the Bath Killer Bees and Southampton Stags will not be played this Sunday after the Bees shared their venue has been declared unplayable.


City vs KCL Postponed due to Waterlogged pitch

It looks like we’ll have to wait to see if the KCL Regents can earn their fourth victory of the year, as their trip to the City Wolfpack has had to be postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. With the venue intended to be used for a double-header alongside the UEL/ARU game, we may yet see another fixture fall from the slate as well.


UEL vs ARU at risk

With their intended venue declared unplayable, we’ve learned the UEL Phoenix and ARU Rhinos are currently scrambling to see if they can arrange an alternate venue to keep this fixture on the slate. Eyes peeled for further updates.


UWE vs Birmingham brought forwards

Originally scheduled for a Week Seven showdown, the UWE Bullets and Birmingham Lions have brought forwards their second meeting to Week Six.


Saturday fixtures for Week Six:
  • 1A Yorkshire/Lancashire - UCLan Rams vs Sheffield Hallam Warriors
  • 1A South  - Reading Knights vs Surrey Stingers
  • 2A North - Leeds Gryphons vs Tarannau Aberystwyth
