Kviv University Crowned First Ukranian Student Champions

RLV Kviv emerged undefeated from their three games to take the first-ever Ukrainian Student Rugby League championship, after a round-robin tournament held at the Locomotive Stadium in Chop at the weekend.

Four university teams entered, Kviv only conceding points in their final match, against second-place Uzhgorod 1.

The student matches were given official status under the auspices of the Committee for Physical Education and the Sport Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, who awarded the medals and diplomas.

“This is another major step for us to grow the sport in the country,” said URL board member Artur Martyrosyan. “It follows on from our first competition with U18s earlier this year, and we are making progress among the young and alongside the Ministries.”
