The women again put up a strong team, coming out on top with a 3-1 victory, with both Rachel James and Rhianna Dowdeswell out classing there opponents. The men’s A team saw some fierce competition, after going 2-0 up Cambridge then brought the score back to level. In the last match at 2-2 it was left to President Nathan Ewin to defend the men’s Varsity title. As Varsity rules state a winning A team is worth 2 points for the University’s total, and a B team win is worth 1 point, after a fantastic final fight Oxford took a devastating 5-0 victory, bringing all 3 shields back to Oxford for another year. Kick of the Match goes to Joram van Rheede (Men’s A), who toppled his red belt opponent with a jumping back kick.
