Saturday 2nd April 2022, saw the Varsity Matches return to Twickenham, with a mixed outcome for the two OURFC Blues teams.
The Women’s Blues put in arguably their best Varsity performance since their last victory in 2016, but very unfortunately had to settle for a 10 all draw, but should be immensely proud of their performance. Oxford’s No 7 Lauren Webb was deservedly awarded the Bunting-Pegers Player of the Match Trophy for an outstanding display.
At half-time of the Men’s Match, the result looked to be in the bag for the Dark Blues as they had secured a 21 nil lead, however a stirring second half comeback from the Light Blues kept the Oxford supporters on the edge of their seats until the full-time whistle which saw the Dark Blues hold on for a 21 – 17 victory. The Dark Blues hooker Alexander Post was awarded the Alistair Hignell Medal as Player of the Match.
