Varsity hat-trick for Oxford

Oxford beat Cambridge 26-19 on Thursday in a third year of Varsity victories at Twickenham.

After a shaky first half where the Dark Blues trailed 19-6 behind Cambridge, Oxford staged a thrilling comeback with three tries in 16 minutes from full-back Sam Egerton, flanker James Harries and substitute Charlie Marr.

The result marks Oxford’s first Varsity hat-trick in 11 years, taking their overall number of wins to 56, with Cambridge at 61. 

Playing just before the blues, Oxford U21’s also won their match against Cambridge, beating their rivals 31-17.
