Rugby Success for St Cross Student Joshua Marshall


The 35th Annual Rugby League Varsity Match between Oxford and Cambridge was played on Friday 6 March at the Honourable Artillery Company in the heart of central London. Oxford went into the match leading the series 17-16 (with one draw) and on the back of 5 consecutive wins, looking to make history with an unprecedented sixth consecutive win in a row. Oxford fielded a relatively inexperienced side with only 4 returning Blues making the match day squad. The match proved a little one-sided, with Oxford emerging comfortable winners 42-0, scoring 8 tries including one from St Cross College member Josh Marshall, and keeping the Cambridge side scoreless. The victory was a record-breaking sixth consecutive victory, the longest winning sequence since the inauguration of this varsity match in 1981. More information and photos are on the Varsity website.
