Light Blues Varsity squad announced

Olivia Lee 1 December 2011

The Varsity Squad for the 2011 match has been announced today at Twickenham stadium.

As tradition demands, Captain Matt Guinness-King, who will retire from rugby after the match, spent Sunday cycling around Cambridge to every player’s room, telling them whether or not they had made the starting line-up. Reserves were picked on Wednesday.

Talking about the experience, which he had been dreading; Matt said that it all went surprisingly well. Dressed in the traditional attire that you can see pictured, Matt said that everyone had taken the news well and that now the players can all concentrate on working together towards the match, rather than competing for the same positions.
