Rugby Fives Varsity Match

James Birch (KES and Corpus Christi) captained the recent Cambridge RFA side which lost narrowly to Oxford by eighteen points despite James winning all his matches. There are no Rugby Fives courts in Cambridge, so he did a great job getting the whole team to Bedford for their practises.

James Toop (St. Olave's & Jesus) played for the Oxford winning first pair at doubles and second pair at singles and also remained undefeated.
