Varsity Rugby U21s Celebrations

Twickenham was the venue for the 127th Varsity rugby match. It was a great day; I mean, simply visiting a huge stadium is usually enough to get me excited. But there was also so much more in store.
It all started with the U21s match that saw Cambridge convincingly beat their archrivals. Somehow I found myself positioned right next to the trophy presentation in prime place to capture the above video. Check out just how much the victory meant!
But the greatest personal highlight was seeing a pal from Homerton not only playing at such an impressive venue, but also scoring a brilliant solo effot!

Then it was time for the big one. An exciting game ended up being the highest scoring match in Varsity history. With a Cambridge player sin-binned, Oxford opened up an almost unassailable lead of 33-15. Relentless second half pressure cut the defecit, but Oxford just held on to take the title 33-29.
