Tips for the season


Men’s Premier League Football

Sure to be fiercely contested this season. Reigning champions Christ Church will again be challenged by a St Catz team who missed out on the title by a single point last year. College football giants Worcester must also be considered contenders for the title after they impressively won the first division last year to promote them back to where tradition dictates they belong.

First Division Men’s Rugby

An intriguing battle between teams with rich and successful pasts. Cuppers champions Univ will be confident that they can displace perennial favourites Keble, who dominated last years’ league, from the top spot. Teddy Hall, most successful of all rugby playing colleges, can never be discounted as challengers – but it would be a shock if they managed to take the title this season.

Women’s Premier League Football

Womens’ football in increasingly competitive – last season, Wadham / Green Templeton took the title on goal difference from Mansfield. Both these sides will hope for a similar performance this year but must be wary of the threat posed by an impressive Somerville side. Somerville women won the second division last year at a canter and also took the cuppers title: it is difficult to see past them when predicting where the first division title will go this year.
