For starters South Birmingham never actually played rugby, next thing is Birmingham Met does, actually the only College in the Birmingham area that does.
Another thing is the Colts team have gained 5 players this year already from the College and it has only just started (Kinsey Stoddard was also at the College for 3 years), Coventry are already up and running with a full time academy with Henley College and are doing really well and this year got 2 players in the England Colleges team, BMet got 1 in this year (for the first time after never having any players even in the Midlands team) and 4 made the trials.
Birmingham Met College have the National Champions in Basketball and Womans Football and only hire the best coaches they can Like Coach Steven Barnes for Basketball and even Desmond Douglas for Table Tennis, AASE progams for various sports as well.
Birmingham Met started College rugby in the bottom division not long ago with mainly players that were new to the game, 4th season now and are already competing with some top teams, Worcester Academy, Coventry Academy and Bristol Academy just to name a few. Birmingham Met College is the also the main part of the Aston Villa Academy (every player from the Villa Academy is a student of the College) and are looking to do similar things with the Bee's.
