Two Blues at Twickenham


On Thursday 6th December 2018, two St Edmund’s men represented the University in the 137th Varsity rugby match at Twickenham.  Andrew Hunter, an Australian reading Management Studies, played in the second row, was in the starting line up and won his third blue.  Fresher Oliver Gnodde, a South African natural scientist who plays at centre, came on as a replacement in the second half. Although Cambridge got off to a good start, leading 9-3 after 35 minutes, an Oxford try just before the interval signaled a change in the fortunes of the Cambridge team, who eventually lost the match 38-16.  This result was in contrast to the 30th women’s match played earlier in the day, which Cambridge won 8-5.  There were no St Edmund’s students in this year’s women’s squad.
