BURC is a member of the Queensland Rugby Union (QRU) and is the only Gold Coast based club competing in the Queensland Premier Rugby competition.

The year is already off to a strong start with BURC welcoming two new, highly experienced coaches for its Colts team and senior representative squad.

BURC head coach, Sean Hedger, one of Australia’s most respected and experienced rugby identities, said he and the team were looking forward to kicking off the season this Saturday, March 7.

"We're looking to improve on last year's season, and with the announcement of the 2015 line-up all signs are pointing to an exciting year for BURC," said Hedger.

"The real strength of this year's team is that we have a diverse group of players who have a broad range of experience, and having that depth to our players will lead to better outcomes on the field."

Five BURC under 20 players were also selected at the start of the year for an intensive two day training camp with the Queensland Country Under 20s squad in Townsville. QLD Country later competed in the Southern states U20 tournament in Adelaide defeating South Australia and NSW Country losing narrowly to Victoria. 

In recent weeks, trial games have been played against the Logan Colts and Queensland Reds, giving the BURC players a chance to hone their game skills ahead of the first round of play.
