The 136th Varsity Match and 31st Women’s Varsity Match between Cambridge and Oxford will take place at Twickenham Stadium on Thursday, 7 December. Last year saw two of the most exciting matches in recent memory, with both Varsity titles changing hands.

Public (open to all)

This December, the Light Blue men, with Bristol full-back Charlie Amesbury as their captain, will be hoping for another dominating defensive performance from the back line - kick-off at 2.30pm.

Meanwhile, at 11.30am, the Light Blue women will be looking for a repeat of their 2015 display, with returning Blue Lara Gibson seeking to lead her side to victory after an unwelcome taste of defeat last year.
