2nd XV 
Since 2010 Queen Mary 2nd XV have grown into a strong feeder team for the 1st XV. The clubs numbers bolstered by the large intake of first years as well as increased commitment among 2nd and 3rd years meant that team no longer have to cancel fixtures due to lack of players. This has given them the platform and as result they finished 6th out of 12 team in their league.
The 2nd XV compete in the BUCS SE League 5B as well as the BUCS SE Conference Plate.

Playing and Training Facilities 
The Club's home ground is located at the Queen Mary University Sports Grounds on Perry Street, Chislehurst which is occasionally used by neighbouring National League side Old Elthamians. In March 2012, the club staged its first evening match at Eton Manor Rugby Club in Wanstead, resulting in a win for The 1st XV against University of Hertfordshire 1st XV. It is hoped there will more evening matches staged at Eton Manor given the success and increased support at this fixture. The Chislehurst ground is used for a training weekend early in September when new students join the University. Most of the time, the club trains at East London Rugby Club in West Ham on Monday nights with Friday night training being introduced for the 2012/2013 season.
Away from the pitch, the 1st XV have further training at the University from a Strength and Conditioning coach with bi-weekly sessions.
2012/2013 Season 
In the 2012/2013 season the Club will begin a drive to get more players within the club qualified as both referees and coaches so that they can pass their knowledge and experience back into the game at community level. The season will also see the introduction, in conjunction with QMotion, of GetActive Rugby. An initiative to get people playing rugby that either haven't played rugby before or do not wish to play competitive rugby. It is hoped that this programme will eventually lead to new players coming into the Club sides.
