Varsity success for Leicester!

We won the men’s rugby. We won the women’s rugby. We won a ton of other stuff. Not to put too fine a point on it: we rock.

The 11th annual Varsity Sports Day saw a plethora of sporting contests between the University of Leicester and our neighbours De Montfort University. More than 4,000 cheering fans from both institutions piled into the Tigers Ground to see the Leicester women’s rugby team beat DMU 29-5 and then the Leicester men’s team triumph 27-13.

We also beat DMU at men’s and women’s hockey, netball, swimming, mountaineering and a whole host of other sports in a veritable mini-Olympics of events. Including a 13-3 triumph at that most extreme of sports – ultimate Frisbee.

Elsewhere, our men’s fencing team lifted the BUCS Cup after beating Staffordshire University in the final.

Hearty congratulations to all our sporting students.
