Earlier this year, members of the men's football club were banned from this year's Varsity fixture for holding an "initiation-style event".
In a URN Sport Special, we told the story of the club's Varsity ban. In addition to hearing the thoughts of the student community, a URN Sport panel also debated the Students' Union's decision.
URN questioned UoNSU Sports Officer Kiri Madhani about the disciplinary action, as well as the wider problem of initiations in university sports clubs. We also spoke to incoming Sports Officer James Bramley about his proposals to further tackle initiations, which are banned by the Students' Union, next year.

In the first part of the programme Sam, Hannah and Patrick explained what had happened to the men's football club this year, and heard statements from both NUFC and the Students' Union regarding the matter. URN also went out and about on campus to gather students' opinions on the Varsity ban decision.
