Cambridge make it four in a row

The annual Oxford v. Cambridge Varsity matches played at the Grange Road grounds in Cambridge yesterday marked a fourth consecutive double victory for the light blues with both the 2nd XV 'Tigers' team and the 1st 'Blues' team securing well deserved wins.

First on were the Tigers featuring last year's Letchworth U18s captain, Nikki, in her familiar fly-half position. As the only 1st year in the starting line-up, her programe billing "... Nikki certainly hasn't forgotten how to put in the big hits and skilled passes that will make an impression today" sounded a rather tall order but one that, happily, she was able to live up to with the Tigers running out winners 15-0.

After lunch, attention turned to the main event - the 2011 Varsity match - in which Nikki was the only first year to be selected for the match squad albeit, having been given the 21 shirt, she was not in the starting XV. Again it was a very tight match in which the Cambridge pulled out a lead and gradually increased it throughout in the face of fierce and spirited attacks from Oxford. In the end, Nikki did not get onto the pitch during the game (which may be just as well as she was already carrying a knock from the first match) so she is now looking to next year's fixture in Oxford!

Final score : Cambridge 22 v. 0 Oxford
