Oxford take Varsity honours

Oxford won the Nomura Varsity Match 21-10 after Cambridge failed to recover from conceding two first-half tries at Twickenham.

Dark Blues backs Alex Cheesman and James Crozier struck for scores that helped Oxford build an imposing 15-3 interval lead.

Although Cambridge gained a penalty try on the back of a dominant scrum, which skipper Jimmy Richards converted following his earlier penalty, Oxford comfortably did enough for victory.

Fly-half Charlie Marr chipped in with three penalties and a conversion - he missed just once from five shots at goal - as Oxford avenged last season's 31-27 defeat.
