sponsorship contract with Green Giraffe for the 2017/18 season!

The City Varsity’s inaugural event saw two matches that were close until the very end with great excitement for all spectators. Both sides have been looking for a Varsity event that brings such fierce competition, and we hope this event is the first of what becomes a long-standing Varsity between Imperial College and LSE across multiple sports.

With both Universities exhibiting excellent rugby LSE take the first ever City Varsity with victories in both the Men’s and the Women’s matches. The event was a great success with estimates of 670 in attendance!

Scores:
Women’s: 20-5 to LSE
Men’s: 17-10 to LSE

Congratulations to the victors!

IC 1st XV arrived at an incredibly windy Harlington, the flat surroundings doing nothing to shield the boys from the gales. The warm up went smoothly, with not one ball dropped and everyone seeming ready for a fight against the League’s leaders.

IC’s Charles Price-Smith started the game with a short, high kick-off not retrieved by the forwards. A strong run from Kent’s hooker and two fall-off tackles later, Kent were bearing down in IC’s 22. The IC defence looked tight but a quick few phases from Kent’s forwards and a quick ball out to the backs saw Kent score a try not even 5 minutes into the game. A look around revealed shocked, disappointed and angry faces. No doubt a few of the boys were wondering, ‘how on Earth are we ever going to impress the RVC Netball girls tonight if we don’t win?’ Whether it was this thought or the Captain’s inspirational words, we will never know, but IC instantly stepped up and into gear.

A strong restart from our fly-half positioned the forwards deep in opposition territory. A penalty was given right in front of the posts so Inside Center, Sam Moorby, stepped up to slot it, somehow managing to send it right of the posts with a kick as pitiful as his hairline.
