  • Description

    OXFORD SURPRISED THE CRITICS IN BRITAIN TODAY (TUESDAY) BY DECISIVELY WINNING THEIR 83RD UNIVERSITY RUGBY MATCH WITH CAMBRIDGE BY 19 POINTS TO 6. A CROWD OF 40,000 AT TWICKENHAM SAW CAMBRIDGE, THE FAVOURITES, BEATEN BY TWO GOALS, A PENALTY GOAL AND TWO TRIES TO A PENALTY GOAL AND A GOAL FROM A MARK.

    CAMBRIDGE SCORED FIRST IN THE 14TH MINUTE WITH A PENALTY FROM HARVEY, BUT THE 'LIGHT BLUES' WERE SELDOM IN THE HUNT..
    THE OXFORD PACK, MAGNIFICENTLY LED BY IAN JONES, COMPLETELY OUTPLAYED CAMBRIDGE, WHO WERE UNABLE TO BRING THEIR TALENTED BACKS INTO PLAY. BEHIND THE OXFORD PACK, LAMB AND DORMAN JUDGED THEIR KICKS WELL, AND CAMBRIDGE'S DREAM OF RECORD-BREAKING FIVE VICTORIES IN A ROW ENDED IN RUIN.

    AFTER HARVEY'S FIRST PENALTY, RUDD AND WAKELIN WENT OVER FOR OXFORD TRIES, THE FIRST OF WHICH WILSON CONVERTED. HARVEY KICKED A GOAL FROM A MARK AND OXFORD LED 8-6 AT HALF-TIME.

    AFTER THE INTERVAL RUDD AND HOUSTON CROSSED AGAIN FOR OXFORD AND WILSON KICKED ONE CONVERSION AND ONE PENALTY. IT WAS OXFORD'S BIGGEST WINNING MARGIN SINCE 1951.
