Clash of the Titans

Passmores enjoyed a trip to the rugby yesterday, to witness a narrow Oxford win in the annual varsity rugby match at Twickenham.

The result was a repeat of the fortunes of the teams in the Under-21 equivalent and these were two scintillating encounters to watch for the neutral supporter.

Cambridge had the better of the first half in each fixture, before capitulating to an onslaught of offensive Oxford pressure in the second halves. 

Rugby was the real winner, however, with the high standards of athleticism on display showing students what the pinnacle of university sport looks like and giving them something to aim at.
