Despite losing the PCubed Varsity Rugby League Match by a record 48-0 margin, Cambridge University took a crumb of comfort from a 2-1 win over Oxford in the Rhino half time crossbar goalkicking challenge last night. Rhino was delighted to be both teamwear supplier this season to the victorious Oxford team and the match ball supplier for the Varsity game - the first appearance of our Vortex Elite XIII rugby league match ball. Three old boys of each club lined up at half time in a dual attempt to kick a goal from the 20 to win a Rhino Vortex Elite XIII ball and/or hit the bar to win Rhino equipment for their Varsity club. Both James Hunt of Cambridge and James Boyle of Oxford came close to hitting the bar and together with James Shearman of Cambridge went away with their prize for successfully kicking a goal. The efforts of Howie Dormer of Oxford and Mark Ramsdale of Cambridge by contrast left both of them grateful that Sky Sports didn’t televise the event this year. A crowd of over 1,000 at the Richmond Athletic Ground witnessed a dominant performance by Oxford over a Cambridge club that is currently struggling with its Blues committee over the status of the game in the University. Both sides were extremely complimentary about the performance of the Rhino ball having extensively trialled it before the game.
Rhino Directors Tony Colquitt and Reg Clark, together with Dave Reynish and Keiron Blackburn of Rhino Teamwear, host Mike ‘Stevo’ Stephenson of Sky Sports and a galaxy of Oxford University rugby union and league legends at the pre match dinner.
